IRONWOOD - Ironwood resident Charlie Semo said a close encounter with what he believes was a wolf on Saturday night has him worried for the safety of children in the city.

Semo said he stood about 50 feet away from a big black animal around 11 p.m. at his house at 513 Florence St., near the Lindquist Electric business that's on U.S. 2.

Semo said he has seen wolves in the wild and there's no doubt in his mind the animal was a wolf.

He said he called 911 and a Department of Natural Resources officer and local wolf expert Donald Lonsway responded.
