Wolves are in the news these days as they seem to be making a comeback. They have been spotted not only in our country but all over the world, including Georgia. This has caused many people to wonder if there really wolves in Georgia and what do we know about them?
In this blog post, we will answer that question and share some facts with you about wolf sightings. Wolves are not native to Georgia (they inhabit places like Alaska and Canada), but they have been spotted in our state. In late 2015, wolves were seen near the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area near Atlanta.
The wolf population is flourishing these days due to reintroduction programs across North America as well as reforestation efforts that provide habitat for them. The populations of coyotes also play a role in this resurgence. So what do we know about wolf sightings? Well, it turns out there may be some wolves lurking around the Appalachian Mountains which would explain why many people have reported seeing one or more recently – even though you’re probably just seeing a coyote instead.
