BANFF, Alta. — Wildlife officers in Banff National Park have killed a female wolf that got too close to people at a popular campground.

Parks Canada says the wolf had become extremely bold and was not phased last week when people at the Tunnel Mountain campground tried to scare it away.

Officials say the animal got into a cooler and was displaying behaviours consistent with food conditioning.

Staff say there are four remaining wolves in the Bow Valley pack.

Parks Canada says it will work to prevent future encounters between wolves and people in the area. (CTV Calgary)
