Wolf killed in B.C. after attack on human
PRINCE RUPERT, B.C. Conservation officers in northwestern B.C. have captured and killed a lone wolf that may have been responsible for a rare attack on a human.
A social media post from the Conservation Officer Service says the wolf was spotted in Port Edward Monday afternoon.
It was similar in appearance to the wolf involved in the attack on a man near Prince Rupert Friday.
A necropsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning.
Conservation officers say the late-night attack occurred as the man walked home through Port Edward and he required hospital treatment for his injuries.
There have been several sightings of wolves around Prince Rupert in recent weeks.
