(COCHENOUR, ON) – The Ontario Provincial Police have informed us about a wolf attack that has taken place in a small town recently.
Police tell us that on February 7th a 38-year-old woman was walking her dog along Edward Avenue in Cochenour, Ontario when a “large black wolf” first attacked her dog.
She decided to step in between the two animals in an attempt to break up the attack and scare off the wolf, which resulted in her suffering several bite wounds to her legs and back. The woman was taken to the hospital for medical attention.
The wolf was as tall as the woman’s chest.
Police investigated the attack scene but were unable to track down the wolf.
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has received numerous complaints about a large black wolf/dog in the Balmertown area, but police have not been able to confirm if this is the same animal.
Citizens are asked to contact police immediately if they come in contact or see the black wolf/dog.
