*Editor’s Note* – I highlighted a comment made below in the excerpt that gives me pause. Is this official actually suggesting that wolves are not dangerous to people but a bear might be? How absurd.

An area near the Banff townsite has been closed to the public after wolves were spotted feasting on an elk about 20 metres off the popular Fenland Loop trail.

“The idea was to ensure the safety of visitors so they wouldn’t stumble into that scene,” he said, noting the wolves could leave and a bear could easily take over eating the carcass. “It’s just a good clear action to take to make sure nobody ventures too close to the site.”
