Lone wolf chasing snowmobiles at Voyageurs National Park

Two trails of Voyageurs National Park have been closed near the Minnesota-Canadian border after a lone wolf has been reportedly chasing snowmobiles.

Voyageurs National Park staff and visitors have seen the wolf near the Ash River area for a little over a week in three reported incidents, and the wolf appears to be wandering without a pack, as announced on the Association's blog.

"We are taking precautions for the protection of the visitors and the wolf. Visitors are encouraged to continue to enjoy the winter wonderland by accessing the open trails throughout the park and multiple gateway communities," Superintendent Mike Ward said.


-The Green Trail (Voyageur Trail) from the Moose River Grade to Namakan Lake will be closed.

-A short section of the Yellow Trail (Kettle Falls Trail) from the Green Trail and Yellow Trail connection in Moose Bay to the Orange Trail (Rudder Bay Trail) and the Yellow Trail connection will be closed.
