Default Odd but True

A ladyfriend of mine was outside her cabin last fall(remoteish,off grid,Northwest Ont.)stacking up some firewood when a wolf sauntered out of the bush and walked right up to her.She shoode it away with her arms and told it to go away as if it were a stray dog.The wolf looked at her like she was nuts,sniffed the air and continued on towards the front of the cabin.She promptly went around to enter her cabin from the rear to get her camera and there was a black bear licking away at the gray well it had dug up. The bear spooked and bolted for the bush.The wolf then sauntered over to the graywell and spent 20 minutes or so finishing the bears lunch.Bear never came back and the wolf eventually left the same direction as the bear. Just happened to be a rotting carcass of a woodchuck under the wood pile which probably was what the wolf initially sniffed out.Somebody suggested that the wolf possibly was kicked out of the pack for bad behaviour(not agreeing with the leader of the pack perhaps) It wasn't a big wolf , young still. Initially thought it was possibly a coyote but pictures prove it to be a wolf. Are there any animal experts here that can weigh in on this wolf behaviour.

A gray well is a pit that gray water runs to and seeps into the ground. Gray water comes from faucets sinks and showers. Black water is sewage. Probably some tasty bacon fat in the gray well.

Cool story but Id seriously consider securing food sources better if both bear and wolf are being attracted.

My suggestion is switch to old spice from brut. Cheap cologne attracts animals
