Saw My First Gray Wolf at the House This Morning
#1
I am guessing it was a younger male or female striking out on their own this time of year. I was in the kitchen this morning and saw him/her loping along across the road in a field. While it was too far and too quick to get a picture of the critter himself/herself, I ran out to find the tracks and get some pics and measurements.

I know many people, wolf experts all, will tell me I saw a poodle or a coyote. Never mind they have never seen a wolf themselves. Never mind I spent three years in Alaska and got to watch them all the time. Never mind I measured all the elements of the tracks and they fall outside of large dog parameters.  Yes, it could have been a large canine like a wolfhound or something similar. But it wasn't. Clearly gray wolf coloration and characteristics.

So believe me or not tinycool . 

It has been a good last year or so for wildlife. Black bear, pine marten, bobcat, and now a gray wolf. Heard about a Mountain Lion chasing a fawn through the back of my place but I have no evidence... yet!

Wonderful that you seen a wolf, just remember they are not cute little miss understood wolfies, they are apex killers, but I think you know that.

Saw one in Germany once, in an area the authorities declared had not had wolves for a century.  Also a young one, my friend and I guessed it had broken off from the pack to establish its own territory.

Also had wild pigs on the street this year and a fox in the yard.
