There has been little activity concerning wolf/human conflicts in the CHSR area over the last month. On December 16th, a wolf (that was in the process of attempting to kill a resident's dog) was shot and not recovered. On January 26th, a wolf that had been hanging around some residental homes near Grange Hall Road was trapped.
On another note, there have been wolf sightings and wolf track
sightings along Chena Ridge, near Becker Ridge Road. On the evening of January 30, a dog was attacked by a wolf, and escaped. The attack occured just outside of the dog owners view in the trees. The attack was silent, and the dog was covered in saliva with lacerations on its neck, chest, and the small of its back. The dog took several days to recover, but will likely survive it wounds.
About February 2nd, another dog off Becker Ridge Road was acting strange and ran after something at the edge of its yard and never returned. The owner tracked the dog and found an abundance of wolf tracks and indications of activity in the undeveloped area uphill from his home. The dog owner believes that his dog was killed by the wolf. There are reports of other missing dogs in the area, but I have not confirmed them yet. Reports indicate that the wolf along Chena Ridge has been there for about 6 weeks.
