With all of the nature and wildlife you can find at Yellowstone National Park, you’ll see some wild shit every once in a while.
Captured by Yellowstone Wolf Tracker, the footage shows a pack of wolves descending upon a herd of elk, flanking the herd on all sides, looking to single out a weak link for dinner.
You see the elk run from the wolves in a ginormous stampede, but for one unfortunate cow, she gets separated from the herd and quickly put on the menu.
Yellowstone Wolf Tracker said in a Facebook post:
“We were fortunate enough to witness the Junction Butte Pack successfully complete a hunt in the Northern Range of Yellowstone.
Only 10% of the time are wolves successful in their hunts so to be able to see the entire sequence unfold was incredibly special.”
Michael Sypniewski, a Yellowstone Wolf Tracker guide, told FTW Outdoorsthat he spotted the hunt through a spotting scope that was located a mile from where the hunt occurred.
The Junction Butte Pack is one of the most constantly monitored, since it’s so close to the main road.
Needless to say, the video shows just how dangerous a small pack of wolves can be, even if dozens of elk are traveling in herds.
Wildlife man, it can be brutal.
The circle of life. At the beginning of December, we were fortunate enough to witness the Junction Butte pack successfully complete a hunt in the Northern Range of Yellowstone. Only 10% of the time are wolves successful in their hunts so to be able to see the entire sequence unfold was incredibly special.
