CTV News Vancouver Island has confirmed Takaya, a well known wolf who spent years living alone on Discovery Island, has died this week.
Cheryl Alexander is a conservation photographer who has been following one of natures great predators for years and said the animal was shot by a hunter.
Ive been crying for the last couple of hours, said Alexander. Its heartbreaking.
She lives in Victoria and has been following, documenting and studying the lone wolf named Takaya, which lived on Discovery Island off the coast of Oak Bay, for six years.
