December at Midnight • Gunflint Lake, Northern Minnesota

This wolf pack is chasing a deer that is running for its life. The pair may pursue the deer for several miles to exhaust it, then bring it down in a joint effort. Group hunting is how wolves can prey on animals much bigger than themselves. Still, deer are fast. If the wolves cannot close in quickly, they will give up and follow the scent of another prey.

All dogs evolved from wolves!
