Imagine: you’re out on a leisurely bike ride, taking in the scenery when suddenly, you hear footsteps behind you. No, you haven’t encountered a lost hiker. Instead, you’re being chased by a wild wolf.

This nightmare came true for a man who was riding his bike through a national park in the Netherlands in November of 2022. The park is known for many types of wildlife, including fox and deer.

According to park officials, visitors should expect wolf activity to continue in the coming months.

The park stated, “Wolves have now settled in De Hoge Veluwe National Park – not by scrambling over the fencing or squeezing underneath it, but with the assistance of ill-intentioned people who cut holes in the fencing or who may even have brought the wolves in by vehicle”

It’s never a smart idea to engage a wolf if you see one in the wild, but it’s likely that the wolf the cyclist encountered was being playful. Just like domesticated dogs, wolves enjoy playing and may try to get humans to take part in their games of tag.
