Wolf Attacks in Northern Communities

THUNDER BAY – News – Wolves are on the prowl in several northern communities. In both Attawapiskat and Sandy Lake First Nation, reports are coming in of wolves attacking pets in those communities.

Likely the colder weather has driven wolves into communities seeking easier meals. In the image a picture of a dog’s leg left from an attack by a wolf in Sandy Lake is a clear demonstration of the danger to pets.

Cheryl Marie Fiddler says, “Found this outside my door yesterday  very gross n disturbing … I almost thought it was one of my dogs but all three of mine were outside thank goodness”.

In Attawapiskat, Blueskywoman shares, “Late last night, while my daughter was walking home with her cousin, They encountered a white wolf attacking a dog and literally killing it around 2:30AM”.

“They were in panic mode and my daughter started running”.

“Please, I ask everyone to be careful, especially during the night. Watch your pets as well. This has been going on for a couple of weeks now. Make sure your children are not out late and not walk home alone”.

Cold weather and potential easy pickings could be driving wolves closer to human habitation.
