On Nov. 8, 2005, 22-year-old Ontario student Kenton Carnegie went for a walk near the northern Saskatchewan mining camp where he was doing a co-op placement. Hours later, his body was found at the edge of a frozen lake, surrounded by wolf tracks.
Kenton Carnegie had flown into Points North Landing working for a survey company as part of his university's co-op program.
Although the province's chief coroner has yet to release a report on what caused his death, a few days after the attack the RCMP said it's likely wolves killed the third-year geological engineering student from the University of Waterloo.
A CBC investigation, based on interviews and previously unreleased government documents, supports the suggestion that this may be the first documented case of a healthy wolf killing a human in the wild in North America in at least a century.
I completely missed this story when it happened. I only heard about it through my wife's nephew who is a pilot and he flew these people into the area.
I lived up north for quite a few years and we never worried about a wolf attacking anyone. If a wolf saw you first, you wouldn't see the wolf. I guess times are changing.
