Bicyclist chased by wolf on highway east of Thunder Bay

…Hilary Petrus was pedaling the remote stretch of highway, about 140 km east of Thunder Bay, on an afternoon ride from his cottage on Lake Superior…”I looked over, and there was a big timber wolf coming right at my bike,” said Petrus.  At the speed he was going – nearly 40 km/h – it passed within a metre or two of his rear tire.
