After spending several years documenting a solitary coastal wolf on the islands of Discovery and Chatham, mere miles off Victoria's shores, Victoria-based photographer Cheryl Alexander has written, Takaya: Lone Wolf (RMD $30). Alexander's film about the mysterious wolf was broadcast on CBC and BBC, and her photos of Takaya widely broadcast. The wolf became a media star. Last year, Takaya left the islands and was seen roaming Victoria's streets. Coming too close to urban dwellers, Takaya was relocated 100 miles further north on Vancouver Island by conservation officers. In March, 2020, Takaya was shot dead by a hunter.
