Takaya, the lone wolf of Discovery Island, has been shot and killed

A lone wolf that recently ventured into Victoria and had to be relocated by conservation officers has been shot dead.

CTV News Vancouver Island has confirmed Takaya, a well known wolf who spent years living alone on Discovery Island, has died this week.

Cheryl Alexander is a conservation photographer who has been following one of nature’s great predators for years and said the animal was shot by a hunter.

“I’ve been crying for the last couple of hours,” said Alexander. “It’s heartbreaking.”

Sometimes, I hate humanity so much I wish a more virulent virus than the current one would wipe us all out.

5. Same here.

I've a neighbor who kills all kinds of wildlife for sport. I'm sure he'd go after wolves.
