Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Last Saturday, Tim Bartlett, a motorcyclist from Alberta, Canada, was chased for over a mile by a wolf while he roared down British Columbia’s highway 93.

The wolf, which Bartlett said was “the biggest dog” he’d ever seen, kept pace with the machine, at times reaching 40 mph, and came within feet of the man.

In an interview with the National Post, Bartlett said:

“When [the wolf] heard me coming, it jumped back over a [roadside] barrier and it started running. I sped up a little bit, it got in nice and close and I was driving with my right hand and clicking pictures with my left. When I first came back around, it came in really close; probably a bit too close. It would have been a real bad time to run out of gas.”

Perhaps the wolf was furious over the sound of traffic blaring through his forest or was just looking for a little sport.

“I don’t think it was after me, it was probably after the bike. That’s just the way I felt; I could have been wrong, I’m no wolf expert,” Bartlett said, adding, “Even over the motor, I could hear it. I could hear its feet on the road.”

While wolf attacks on humans are very rare, wolf attacks on motorcycles are unheard of. Perhaps this apex predator was just making sure that bipeds and their machines don’t get too comfortable in wolf country.

Dogs go nuts over spinning things like wheels. Don’tknow why, but they do.

It heard about amnesty for all and free phones and wanted a ride into town to sign up.

Of course it was. Love the way the guy discounts the attack idea. Wolf attacks are now rising and humans have been killed - and eaten. Now documented, the fuzzy doggy theory of wildlife management is on retreat.

Is this the same road where all the hitchikers have been disappearing?

My father, deceased long ago now, told me that when he was a kid, the cure for dogs chasing cars was to tie a short, heavy rope to the spokes of the wheels and tie the other end in a knot. Then drive by the dog.

So this idiot is on a motorcycle, and he’s driving with one hand so he can take pictures OF THE WOLF THAT IS RUNNING AFTER HIM. Stupid.

What kind of bike is that, where a wolf with a maximum speed of 40 MPH can keep up with it?

I guess it wasn’t the kind that goes from 0 to 100 in 4 seconds, which is what you should do if a wolf is chasing you.

I’ll bet if you stopped on the road you would have found out the wolf was just after the bike. //sarc off//

On my drive from Winnipeg to Sault St Marie on the Trans Canada Highway I didn't see any wolves (giant or otherwise) but I sure saw a few big a$$ moose along the road.Big,big,big! And they say everything’s big in *Texas*.

The knot would spin at the wheel speed and strike the dog on the snout when he got too close. The idea was to train the dog not to chase cars without killing him. Is that what you were asking?
