Six wolves were spotted Monday evening near the entrance gate to the John Hart generating station.
“This may be the first in recent history that a pack of wolves has been seen around the John Hart area,” said BC Hydro spokesperson Stephen Watson.
The pack was spotted by cleaning staff around 6 p.m.
The Conservation Service was notified and BC Parks has temporarily posted caution signs around the trail and road access points on Highway 28.
The Canyon View, Station View and Millennium trails are all well used by the Campbell River community and pass through the John Hart site.
