SilverStar Mountain Resort residents and guests are being warned of a lone black wolf inhabiting the resort area.

"Our staff has physically seen the wolf both at the village and out on the mountain trails," Brad Baker, director of operations, wrote in a post to the SilverStar community Facebook page. 
 
"The wolf has not shown any aggressive action but is turning up in areas where there is human activity and equipment operating. This is very rare for SilverStar."

Resort staff have reported the wolf to the Conservation Officer Service RAPP Line as well as to a local Conservative Officer and have been asked to advise guests, residents and staff to supervise pets and children closely, especially after dusk and before dawn.

A black wolf is a variant of the gray wolf.
