Wolves are great at team work. The cow moose did her best but the little calf was dome. Awesome photos of life and death in animal kingdom.

Unfortunately, this is more the norm. Moose populations have plummeted in states like Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana where wolf and grizzly bear introductions have occurred and up until recently no management plan for the apex predators was put in place.

There's video of this encounter on youtube for anyone who wants to see it in real-time.

I tried to post the YouTube link, but it won't let me, so look up "Pack Of Wolves Attack Moose And Her Baby (Long Fight)." Incredibly interesting video!

Did you see at least 1 of those wolves had a radio collar?

While this was in a national park, that's our competition in hunting. (I tend to appreciate the competition more than most hunters.) They hunt like their lives depend on it; I justlove the experience in the outdoors.

I think that I would have taken sides with the moose and blasted the wolves. I generally do not mess with natures course, but wolves are just killing machines and serve no purpose but to decimate animal populations to zero, then move onto other areas and do the same. Our forefathers had the right motto.

A sad ending for the baby but this is nature. They hunt because they have to eat.

My name is Argosinu. I'm a poser and a troll. I show up any time there's a post about wolves and try to convince people I'm a hunter and that hunter's should like wolves.

FAIL.

Quite obvious that the mother moose did an outstanding job of protecting her young, but this is the real world not a Disney cartoon. The end was determined as soon as the wolves located the young moose and mother. I give mother moose an A+ right up to photo #9, then it seems she had been worn out by the relentless and determined predators.

In Alaska, have wolves and moose have coexisted for hundreds of years? I'm not sure but I think the Alaskan wolves weren't wiped out as they were in the American West. In the American West now that wolves are being reintroduced there definitely needs to be a management plan to control the size of the pack(s) so that the herds of elk, deer, moose aren't decimated not to mention livestock. I was hunting in montana last year and a buddy showed me photos of wolves taking down a cow. They starting eating from the guts while the cow was still alive. It was a brutal death but is the norm for wolf behavior.

I wouldn't mind if people hunted wolves in a similar fashion as coyotes. Just make them a varmint in the eyes of the law and let them be hunted year round with no regulation. Reason I say this is because there are some parts of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming where there are no more deer, moose, elk, etc. because the predators have killed entire populations out of certain areas where the deer family of animals (including elk and moose)had roamed for thousands of years and it scares me that their numbers will eventually reach states like Nevada, Utah, Colorado (If they haven't made their way into these parts already).

I don't like the fact that this happens more often than not. Sometime I wish that we could hunt wolves.

Hate to say it, but this will only keep happening until they issue more wolf tags. Wolves are a problem and they are putting the future of good hunting in jeopardy.
