While out hiking the Lac Du Bois Grasslands, North of Kamloops, Frank Ritcey made an exciting yet scary discovery. A pack of at least 8 wolves were spoted in an area they haven't frequented in years.  To document his find, Frank set up a number of trail cameras. Daybreak's Doug Herbert went out with him to see if he could hear the call of the wild for himself.
