Certain portions of Alaska seemed to be plagued by problems with wolves this year. The latest is the Eagle River area, where a pack of wolves recently terrorized a group of three women joggers and their dogs. The group was more than a mile from their vehicle and were absolutely terrified by the encounter, with the wolves circling and coming closer, chasing the group down the trail and attacking one of the dogs. One of the women repeatedly used pepper spray on the seven-member wolf pack.
The Anchorage Daily News has an article, along with a link to a video interview shot by KTVA about the wolf encounter which is well worth watching.
