Brazen wolf sightings
Parks Canada has posted danger signs in Pacific Rim Park warning of an increase in wolf activity in and around the Long Beach unit of the park reserve. A troubling discovery, especially when conservationists say wolves are normally afraid of humans.
Park conservation manager Renee Wissink says the wolves are acting more brazen this year. "A couple wolves approached a couple of visitors, which isn't unusual but in this case they didn't exhibit a lot of fear. That is always concerning to us."
Wissink says the wolves have been spotted in packs of up to seven, patrolling area beaches for food. He advises parents to keep a close watch on children and to keep pets on leashes at all time when in wolf territory.
