Wolf Sighting Sparks Caution Among Residents

Wolf Sighting in Ashmore: Residents Urged to Exercise Caution

Ashmore, PA - A recent sighting of a wolf has sparked concern among residents of our tranquil town. While wolf sightings are rare in our area, it's crucial for everyone to remain vigilant and informed.

Officials from the Ashmore PD Parks and Game Division advise residents to exercise caution when outdoors, especially during dawn and dusk when wolves are most active. If you encounter a wolf, do not approach it or attempt to feed it. Instead, calmly and slowly back away while maintaining eye contact.

It's important to note that wolves are wild animals and should not be kept as pets. In fact, it is illegal in the state of Pennsylvania to keep wolves or wolfdogs as pets. To help residents distinguish between a wolf and a wolfdog, we've included a graphic below:

Residents are encouraged to report any wolf sightings to the Ashmore Wildlife Services for further investigation. By working together and staying informed, we can ensure the safety of our community and our wildlife.
