Wolf Siting at Gilford Island

Marine Harvest employee Graham Byatt recently tweeted an incredible picture of his encounter with a wolf off Gilford Island. Here is a more detailed account of his experience

“ It was taken just off Gilford Island on the shore by Port Elizabeth. Chris Stovman was also there and took a few photos. We had heard them howling all morning and wondered what was going on. Just after lunch they sounded especially close so we hopped in the boat and went to go see if we could see anything onshore from the boat. As we were driving along the shore we saw the white paws. He just stood there as we drifted closer. He didn't move or flinch until we got about 30 ft away and then he barked a few times so we stayed about 30 ft or so away.”
