Banff motorcyclist Tim Barlett played a mile-long game of cat-and-mouse with a wolf on Highway 93 in Kootenay National Park earlier this month. His story would have likely turned into nothing more than local lore if not for the handful of cell-phone photos he was able to snap during the encounter.
From Bartlett’s interview with the National Post:
“[I] was doing about 90km/h in the right hand lane going north and [the wolf] came from the left hand side of the road. It darted out, crossed the other lane and I had to swerve and accelerate to get around it. I went forward about 100 meters and when I turned around it was just standing in the middle of the lane watching me,” Bartlett said.
