Youtube user Nick Beddington experiences a close encounter with a beautiful wild Canadian wolf

The grey wolf, also known as the timber wolf, prefers the open tundra and forests of British Columbia. Although they once inhabited most of North America, now distribution occurs in only Alaska, Canada, and parts of the U.S.A.

Human fear, superstition, and outright hatred of this animal decreased its population drastically and eradicated it from 50% of its former range.

The grey wolf generally travels in packs. During the snowy winter months they tend to follow the trail made by the leader to conserve energy.

The front foot is larger than the rear and the toes are often splayed particularily in soft ground. The front foot track is rounded with four toes with the claws evident and the heel pad having a inverted V-shape, whereas the rear is slightly more oval with a triangular shaped pad.

    Not a wolf expert but I think this is very unusual behavior for a lone wolf. Looks like it's looking for something or maybe has had a human in it's life. Very sad. Hope it survived.

    I think what I love most (other than the close-up of the wolf) is that the photographer just let it be. No sound, no tossing food, no getting out of the vehicle. Awesome. Well-done.

    (Please stop hunting us) Says the wolf- (For we only hunt for strength, we don't hunt your kind for fun or your pelt. Please. For we will die off if you don't stop.)
