Normal to see wolves this time of year, says Wildlife Office
Wolves have been sighted in and around Baker Lake, Nunavut, in the last few weeks, and one killed a dog in the community.
Concerned residents call the local Wildlife Office when a wolf is sighted in and around the community.
Wildlife Officers say one wolf was shot in the community.
“We had a call out and report and concern from a local person that there was a wolf chewing on some caribou meat, and … another wolf was just shot yesterday that had come into a home, and …killed and eaten a dog,” said Robert Harmer, the community’s Wildlife Officer.
Russell Toolooktook, who lives in the community, said it seemed the wolf is healthy but hungry.
Wildlife Officers say it is normal to see wolves this time of winter.
