While at Algonquin Provincial Park last weekend, it was a delight to see not one, but three wolves.
I could only get glass on one collared wolf about ¾ of a mile away. The other two were at a greater distance and running though an open area in the surrounding woodland.
A dead, road-kill moose carcass was set out in a far-off clearing below the Visitors’ Center for the wildlife to scavenge and the enjoyment of people visiting the park. While the carcass could have been positioned in the woodland, it was placed visibly for Park tourists. The wolves were drawn to the carcass which was mostly gone by the time we arrived. Had the carcass not been at this spot, we likely would have not seen the wolves.
The Eastern wolf is a beautiful creature, living in an exquisite location in Canada.
The carcass also attracted Pine Martin, fox and ravens. We only saw the raven at the carcass.
The lone wolf…
