Police are reminding the public not to feed wild animals after a school employee had a run-in with a wolf.
Wolves have been sighted in the Chapleau area and Const. Amanda Huff said the Superior East Wawa OPP has received reports of people feeding the animals.
The most recent report involved a woman who found a wolf near her car in a school parking lot.
"It scared her a bit so she went back in and called police to be there to keep her safe while she went to her vehicle," said Huff.
She added wolves are wild animals, not pets and people should never encourage them to approach residential areas by feeding them.
