About the Show 

Somewhere deep in America’s big backyard, wild things are stalking their prey – little do they know, they are being hunted themselves; acclaimed wildlife tracker Casey Anderson camps out on a wild island to investigate aggressive Wolves, rappels into a cave in search of Vampire Bats, comes face-to-face with a rare herd of Alaska’s gargantuan Moose, slices his way through ‘Gator-Heaven’ in the Florida Everglades, helicopters in to witness a face-off between Bighorn Sheep and Mountain Lions and finally, goes into the heart of darkness to experience the unknown world of Yellowstone’s Grizzlies at night.

Casey Anderson scours Canada’s wild West Coast for clues to reveal what is behind a rash of bold wolf behavior on Vancouver Island. His journey begins in the picturesque coastal hamlet of Tofino, a community perched on the edge of the Pacific Ocean – where wolves have been known to push the limits: hunting and killing backyard pets, displaying aggression and lack of fear towards humans, and even hunting prey right within city limits. Rumor has it, Tofino’s wolves aren’t typical wolves, but Casey wants to know if these so-called “Monster Wolves” are wolves at all. To uncover the truth, he heads north, deep into British Columbia’s remote Great Bear Rainforest. Here, Casey tracks and observes the “fishing wolves,” perhaps the wildest and most genetically pure wolves in the world. Finally, a visit to a wolf sanctuary in New Mexico yields startling new evidence that threatens to break open the case. As the final pieces of the puzzle fall into place, Casey returns to Tofino to answer once and for all: are these wolves, monsters, or a little of both?
