Terrifying wolf encounter has B.C. lighthouse keeper sharing advice: ‘Don’t run’

From CTV News in Vancouver Island:

The keeper of a remote lighthouse on the northern tip of Vancouver Island is sharing his heart-pounding experience with a wolf in hopes others will learn what not to do in a similar encounter.

Harvey Humchitt Jr. has operated the lighthouse on Cape Scott, a provincial park renowned for old-growth trees and rugged terrain, for the last 17 years.

While the area doesn’t get much in terms of human traffic, with only about 3,000 to 5,000 hikers per year according to Humchitt, wolves are routinely spotted by him and his colleagues.
