Warning issued for bold wolves at K-Country campsite

Bold wolves roaming a Kananaskis Country campsite have prompted a warning from authorities

KANANASKIS – Bold wolves roaming a Kananaskis Country campsite have prompted a warning from authorities.

Alberta Parks issued the wolf warning at Sundance Lodges in the Evan-Thomas Provincial Recreation Area on Sept. 1 until further notice.

“Multiple wolves frequenting the area, displaying bold behaviour in closely passing occupied campsites,” the warning stated.

“If you are approached by a wolf, act aggressively to discourage it from approaching any closer.”

Alberta Parks said wolves can be encountered anywhere in Kananaskis and to minimize your chance of running into one, they recommend:

  • Never approach, entice or feed wildlife.
  • Ensure all food, garbage, pet food and other scented items are not left unattended at any time of day or night and are stored inside a vehicle.
  • Keep children close.
  • Keep your pet on a leash at all times.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. Leave the area if you see or smell a carcass.
  • Have bear spray accessible and know how to use it.

Report wolf sightings and carcass locations to 403-591-7755.
