Smoky Mountains -Cades Cove saw wolf.

Jump to last reply

Has anyone else seen a wolf in Cades Cove?
Went to Cades Cove and saw a large wolf cross the road while in my car. It was after leaving the Old Mill/Restroom area where the deer are on the left regularly. The exiting side.

I have been hiking Cades Cove for over 30 years on the popular hiking trails and have never seen a wolf.
I understand that the Park Service has reintroduced wolves. [This seems mean, being the generations of deer have lived in somewhat peace without worrying. And for us hikers.]

Also, Cades Cove is not out in the middle of no where. The wolves can travel to nearby cities over years of multiplying. Needless to say the campgrounds.

I do not like this. It makes me afraid to hike in Cades Cove. Wolves can travel far.
The park service is also letting areas grow up and young people do not get to see how the people farmed and lived in this beautiful Cades Cove.

Not trying to start an opinion forum, just wondering about you Cades Cove Smoky Mountain visitors/lovers and your wolf sightings.
Also if you feel safe hiking with these newly added residents?

Sad, betsy3
