Canmore man attacked by wolf after he takes shortcut through forest

“I took what I thought was a shortcut up the mountainside,” recalled Morgan, noting he was walking on a path above Harvie Heights when he heard some rustling behind him. “At first I thought it was a rabbit. Then I heard a branch break and heard snarling and looked behind me and saw a canine-shaped animal.

“I didn’t know if it was a coyote, husky or a wolf but it was fairly big. I am 6-foot-1, so it must have stood about three feet tall. I don’t believe that is a coyote or a husky. They don’t get that big.”
