A morning walk on the Brotherhood Bridge Trail took an unfortunate turn for a person walking their dog Monday.

Wildlife Regional Supervisor Ryan Scott of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game said that at about 7:15 a.m. Monday, a person was walking their dog on the trail when the dog scampered into a grove of trees.

The owner of the dog — Scott did not provide details about the owner or the breed of the dog, saying he wanted to protect the privacy of the owner — then watched as a black wolf emerged from the grove of trees with what appeared to be part of the leg of a deer, Scott said. The owner and friends eventually were able to go over to the area, where they found the dog deceased and a fairly fresh carcass of a deer.
