    “Who’s afraid of a hybrid wolf”

    Well I am not sure about ‘afraid, but damn wary. They are much more aggressive and ‘bigger’ than the old ones. Ottawa Ontario has signs up warning people on walking paths how to deal with them: Rough translation, back off and don’t annoy them. And this is a city that captures black bears in town occasionally and has been known to shoot the odd moose at a bus stop. Heck the place is full of politicians too. There are no warning signs for bears, moose or politicians but for coyotes as they are called, there are warning signs.
