Nature is an unforgiving place.
It’s an eat or be eaten and a survival of the fittest world out there, even if we want to try to ignore it.
Wolves are a social, intelligent and skilled predator. They are typically about 3 to 5 feet long, and can weigh anywhere up to 150 pounds. They are well adapted for hunting, with sharp teeth and claws, powerful jaws, and excellent senses of sight, hearing, and smell.
Wolves are social animals that hunt in packs, which can range in size from just a few individuals to as many as 30. This structure allows them to take down larger prey than they would be able to alone, and allows them to share in the rewards of their hunt. However, wolves are also good hunters when hunting solo and often take down smaller prey like rabbits, rodents and birds.
One of the most impressive aspects of wolf hunting is their ability to take down large prey, such as elk. Wolves are known to hunt elk in packs, using their intelligence and teamwork to bring down these massive animals. They will typically target weaker or injured animals, and will use their speed, agility, and coordination to chase them down and bring them to the ground.
Every once in a while, a lone wolf will take on a big animal by itself. This usually happens when they are struggling to find other food sources.
This lone wolf is seen running up on an elk that is trying to escape. It gets behind the elk and is seen biting it right on the rear end.
The elk takes off running harder but the wolf doesn’t shy away. As the elk turns you can see the open wound with blood pouring out of its butt.
The elk tries to use its size for defense and starts trying to kick the wolf and not let it get behind it. But, the wolf is smart hunter and is able to run around, stay out of range and tire the elk out.
The wolf ends up taking it down and a pair of wolves are seen feeding on the elk.
It’s a wild world out there.
