We’ve had bears, cows, bison, mountain lions, and moose wander into Great Falls and the surrounding area in recent years – but this is the first time that I’ve heard of wolves nearby. According to the Tribune:
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is investigating reports of a pack of wolves in the Floweree area 25 miles northeast of Great Falls.
Floweree resident Diane Walker, who last year had two grizzly bears on her property, reported the wolves. Walker says she saw a single wolf on Friday as she was driving into Floweree, two black wolves and a silvery brown wolf on Saturday and five black wolves on Sunday.
“There is no mistaking wolves,” Walker said. “You don’t mix them up with coyotes.”
