A few weeks ago I received a Email regarding a baby wolf that had been spotted near the base of Mount Hays, he was in the bush watching the local kids ride their motorcycle, I at first thought it was not true or that it was a case of mistaken Identity. Its way to early to see pups, If we compare to last year Stacey and I seen the pups in Aug, and they were just leaving the summer Den. We seen the alpha female and have video of her when she was pregnant with her pups, this was taken in March last year. To me it just didn’t make sense. We have been a few times we have been out at the summer den site. Seen one wolf and a few tracks and collected some scat.
Stacey and I went out Sunday April 22, 2007, seen more tracks, and low and behold we saw very small tracks in the mud, these tracks were from the canine family, I could not make sense of this. Stacey and I went to the other spot to check and see what kind of prints we could see there. Again we found small canine tracks with a set of big tracks. I thought at first maybe there was a change with the female alpha and there were pups born. I also thought it could be a small lost dog. But I’m thinking now it could be fox or a coyote has wondered in to the area.
I would like to set of some hidden cameras in the field and see what is going on.. I’, going to email Chris and see what he thinks….. Stay tuned photos to follow..
