Wolf killed in Prince Rupert over habituation concerns

Conservation officers destroyed a wolf in Prince Rupert last week after increasing concern about the animal’s behaviour.

Ryan Gordon with the BC Conservation Officer Service says they received numerous complaints about the wolf becoming more bold near people and pets around the city.

Gordon says Prince Rupert does have a large urban deer population which means wolves will frequent the region.

Gordon says the wolf was euthanized April 7th after about a month and a half of monitoring.

He says any wolf sightings or unusual behaviour can be called into the RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277.
