A Kelowna man had the encounter of a lifetime while hiking a commonly used trail up in the Black Mountain area.
Mike Walchuck said he stumbled upon a pack of wolves and was able to photograph the experience.
“I was just doing a Saturday hike. (I’ve) been there half a dozen times doing about an eight-kilometer loop. On the upper stretches of the trail I came into an opening and saw one wolf initially and then saw the black one shortly after,” said Walchuck.
Walchuck tells Global News he was a bit surprised by what he had come across. He said he quietly assessed the situation and made sure he was not in harm’s way.
