BANF, Alberta (AP) - A Canadian man says he was chased by a gray wolf while he was riding a motorcycle in British Columbia.
Tim Bartlett of Banff said the wolf darted onto the roadway and began chasing him June 8 as he was riding through the Canadian Rockies. The animal got within several feet of him before Bartlett accelerated.
After Bartlett put some distance between himself and the wolf, he stopped to take some photos, capturing it in full pursuit. He said he could hear the wolf's feet on the road.

He said he believes the wolf was after his bike. Bartlett accelerated again as traffic picked up, and said he last saw the wolf running away from the highway and into the trees.
