The Wolves of the Whiteshell: Part I

Timber wolves are possibly the most elusive, beautiful, and mysterious wildlife in the Whiteshell Provincial Park. Wolves in the Whiteshell are a rare sight, although the amount of tracks in the winter are a strong reminder that they are around in good numbers. You are far more likely to see wolves in the winter as they cross the frozen lakes in search of a deer making its way through the deep snow. Occasionally you can hear their eerie howls in the wind, a beautiful yet haunting sound that can send chills down your back.

The wolves of the Whiteshell are the January ‘Wildlife of the Month’. Check back for several other ‘Wolves of the Whiteshell’ posts throughout the winter.
