A family driving near the Radium Hot Springs in British Columbia, Canada, got an up close look at some of the local wildlife. Maybe too close of a look, actually.

The family noticed a grey wolf on the side of the road, so they began filming. But when the family drove off, the wolf decided to chase their car. The family says that the wolf chased the vehicle for a few kilometers, and called it "an amazing experience."

This isn't the first time a gray wolf has chased a vehicle in Canada. In 2013, a motorcyclist had a similar experience in the same area. It's unclear if this is the same wolf, but it sure looks extremely similar.

"My family, my dad, and in-laws were driving around Radium Hot Springs. It was a hazy morning because of all the wildfires that have happening in the province."

"My husband then slowed down and saw a grey wolf beside the road. He alerted us, and because I am always fascinated with nature and wild animals we meet along our trips, I got my phone and started recording."

"I was sitting at the very back of the van when I saw him running beside the road and when I turned to look at the back that is when I noticed him chasing after the car. He was running so fast and he had his eyes only on us because there were other cars on the opposite direction. He chased us for a good couple of kilometers and an amazing experience."

"If only we had the time we would've tried to see how far he will follow us but we were on a time crunch as well. I was keen on reporting or calling parks Canada cause we were afraid that the wolf might get hit my another moving vehicle but there were no service in the area." said family

    What if this was a hybrid that someone dumped. He might have been thinking this was his way home. Might have looked like th same car.

    He would go by smell so I don't think he was a hybrid and thought this was his humans. If wild, he would not waste his energy like that for nothing. Something was going on, what ? we will never know. Plus running full out on pavement will cause his pads to swell and be sore. Poor thing.

    Did they take this wolf's cub? I can only see a wolf chasing a car if these people took it's baby.

    It's not a wolf!

  6. I also think it may be a wolf/dog that was dropped off because they couldn't control it anymore. I pray it will be alright. It should be reported because the poor animal looks desperate.

    I can't stop thinking of this poor wolf or wolf hybrid. This truly breaks my heart. :'( I really think he/she was raised by people then dumped for whatever reason. He/she will most likely die either by getting hit by a car, getting shot for being misunderstood, starve because it has never had to hunt for his/her food, or tore up by other wolves or other predators, etc. I pray someone is able to save him/her. I sure wish I could. :'(

    I agree with the wolf-hybrid theory that it was dumped unfortunately.

    That doesn't look like a wolf, it looks like a dog.

    It's probably a wolf dog that someone couldn't handle and release it thinking it will be more happy in the wild.
