Calgary Dec.14 (IBNS): A noticeable change in the behavioral pattern of wolf pack in Banff National Park raised concern among park officials and visitors in Banff area, according to media reports.

According to a National Post report, in Mount Norquay the three wolves of Bow valley pack chased a park worker, who was forced to flee with his snowmobile and was continued to be chased by the wolf pack for a short time.

At Tunnel Mountain campsite when campers sat beside a fire after dinner,a pack of wolves advanced towards them quite aggressively which forced them to take shelter in their truck.

They made all possible roaring noises but by surpris​e​​ ​in them one of the wolves came forward and left with a loaf of bread.

According to Bill Hunt resource conservation manager  of Banff National Park it was extremely unusual for wolves to approach large machines like snow making equipment as these machines made huge noise, and that didn't deter these packs and that was really a matter of grave concern.

Kim Titchener, a wildlife specialist, said: "Tourists think it's cool to throw food or even hand feed them. When you allow them access to  human  food and that's when we see them approaching people."

Prior to these incidents, the officials were happy to watch that the remaining had been with their normal behavior by actively hunting their natural prey.

A recent study showed that wolves were at the bottom of a ladder of carnivorous  animals that attacked humans. Only one Canadian in last 100 years had been killed by the wolf.
