Unconfirmed Wolf Sighting sparks City Notice for Moresby Park

A report to the City of Prince Rupert of a wolf sighting in the Moresby Park area has led the city to post a Notice to the City Website today  reminding residents to be cautious while travelling along the city's trail system and to use appropriate measure to ensure personal and pet safety.

For those that may not know the location, Moresby Park is adjacent the Prince Rupert Campground, located behind the Anchor Inn apartments, it is accessed from trails at the Anchor Inn from the south and on Moresby Avenue to the north.

Few details were released as part of today's notice as to when the wolf sighting took place, or if more than one of the animals may have been spotted, However the City does advise that the BC Conservation Service has been notified about the encounter.

The City's notice does not indicate what, if any measures the provincial officers plan to take in relation to this case file.

Social media in recent weeks has also provided reports of encounters with wolves around the Prince Rupert and Port Edward region, residents should also take note that bears have now awoken from the winter slumber and that proper care of personal property will help to reduce those encounters this Spring.
