THERE are wolves in town! (Not the financial kind). Wednesday night, at around 12:30 a.m., I happened to be looking out the patio door onto Scotland Street, and saw a very large wolf running down the middle of the road. I have seen many deer, black bears, moose, lynx, and even a horse, but never a wolf. I have seen a coyote in town, but this animal was much larger. It had to be at least five feet long, not including the tail.
Twenty years ago one of my cats was viciously attacked by an animal. She made it home but was fatally wounded. I live on the south side of town, but we all still live very close to nature.
