A Hungry Pack of Wolves Works Together to Earn a Meal

When the Winter months roll around in Yellowstone, grazing animals such as elk often struggle to find any food. Their low stamina during this time of the year can make them easy targets for packs of hungry wolves.

While the wolves are sometimes successful in their hunts, this video footage showcases an intelligent elk running away from a wolf pack and seeking refuge in a chilly waist-deep lake. It’s far too deep for the pack of wolves to follow, and so the elk successfully avoided becoming the wolves’ dinner.

But just because the elk got away this time around doesn’t mean that pack of wolves won’t eat. In fact, one member of the pack seems to have called out to the rest, alerting them to a different meal somewhere off in the distance.

It truly is survival of the fittest out there…
