Calgary Herald - - CITY + REGION -

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.
