NOVA SCOTIA (NYTIMES) - The warnings showed up more than a week ago in mailboxes in western Nova Scotia. Wolves were seen nearby, the letters said. "If a Gray Wolf is encountered, do not provoke, engage or feed the animal. Back away slowly while remaining calm - do not turn and run." Other residents of the area in the Annapolis Valley, near the Bay of Fundy, evidently heard growling coming from the woods. But there were no wolves. It was all a psychological training exercise gone wrong. The goal was to train a brigade of reservists on methods for defending against a disinformation campaign by a foreign adversary. The soldiers who organised it created a campaign of their own: printed flyers warning that the wolves had been seen in the valley. They also broadcast the sounds of growling wolves from speakers, according to The Ottawa Citizen, which reported on the incident Wednesday. Only members of the military were supposed to see the flyers and hear the broadcasts, but the warning letter somehow got out to nearby residents.
