A necropsy on the wolf Conservation Officers killed in Port Edward Monday hasn't provided much for answers as local residents remain nervous after last Friday's wolf attack in the community.

In an update on its Facebook page, the Conservation Officer Service says the necropsy report was "inconclusive" and DNA samples have been sent for forensic analysis to determine if the animal is the one responsible for the attack on 72-year-old Stanley Russ.

Russ remains in hospital in Vancouver receiving treatment for the wounds he suffered in the attack.

Meanwhile, the District of Port Edward has issued another statement, advising residents to take extra precautions when they're outside as another lone wolf was spotted in the community this morning.
