Urgent warning to city residents to 'keep safe' as rampaging wolf stalks streets after escaping zoo

AN urgent warning has been issued to city residents to “keep safe” as a rampaging lone wolf continues to stalk the streets after escaping from a zoo.

A pack of wolves fled through a hole deliberately cut in a fence at Greater Vancouver Zoo earlier this week.

The zoo has been shut to visitors

The zoo said most of the animals were now back safely in their care – but a frantic search is underway for the last remaining wolf.

The Environment Ministry said anyone who sees a wolf should keep their distance and report the animal immediately to the authorities.

British Columbia Conservation Officer Service told CTV news that people should “keep their distance” if they do see the animals.

The zoo said the manner of their escape is “suspicious, and believed to be due to malicious intent”.

The enclosure usually holds nine wolves and six cubs – and it’s not clear how many of the animals escaped.

Cops are investigating how the wolves got out of the zoo using a hole in the fence which appeared to be deliberate.

The zoo has been shut for now.

A visitor said they were turned away due to an “issue with an animal,” and told nobody was allowed in the park due to safety concerns.

The Greater Vancouver Zoo has been caught up in controversy in the past.

In 2019, a young girl was rushed to hospital after she was bitten by a black bear at the attraction.

In the same year, advocacy group Zoocheck found animals at the zoo were suffering from a lack of enrichment.

And in 2021, problems continued when an employee was injured by a jaguar during feeding.
