Wolf, which was habituated by humans, killed in Ucluelet, B.C.

From the Westerly News:

A wolf was killed in Ucluelet (B.C) on Friday afternoon.

The B.C. Conservation Officer Service destroyed the animal around 12:30 p.m.

Conservation Officer Steve Ackles told the Westerly News the COS had been monitoring the animal for several days. He said the wolf is believed to have attacked two dogs at a local campground Thursday night and was spotted around Ucluelet Elementary School Friday afternoon around 11:30 a.m.

“This particular wolf was just too, too, calm and content to be around people at close proximity and living inside the town,” he said. “In broad daylight, that’s just not typical wild wolf behaviour to be that comfortable around people.”
