Swedish woman riding her horse startled by a wolf
"I was out riding with my horse. Suddenly my horse quickly stopped and stared intensely in to the forest. At first I couldn't see anything, but then after a few seconds the wolf showed up. My horse started to walk again and the wolf came after us in the path. It followed us for about 500 meters. It got as came as close as 8 or 10 meters behind us. It is very rare to see a wolf so near Stockholm city, and as close as this one was. The wolf was curious and not aggressive. It felt as if she was just lonely and looking for a friend. When I decided to ride up to a small road, the wolf stopped at the path and looked after us. She seemed disappointed, but it was a nice experience to be this close to wild nature."
