Lots of footage of Algonquin Park’s wolves, which are heavily admixed with coyotes, even breeding with them now when both populations are relatively stable. You can really see the coyote influence in this wolves, for these are the closest thing to a population of 50/50 “coywolves” in the wild.

These are bite marks on quaking aspen nearly seven feet up the three.


And some shed out hair. Moose have hollow hair like white-tailed deer, but it’s based upon on a much larger scale. They also have a much denser undercoat.


The moose weren’t on the trail that day, but they weren’t that far off.

These were taken with my telephoto lens, and they were quite a distance off.






I post these photos from South Carolina. They were taken over a month ago from the lodge where I was staying near Denali National Park.

They might as well have come from a different universe.

But they are from the same country.

These calves had their mother and thus had a fighting chance against the bears and wolves.

I hope they are doing well now.

Update on the Denali moose calves

Remember the moose calves I saw at the Denali Park entrance?

Well, they were coming into contact with people so much that they had to be captured. I had heard that their mother had been killed, but the park had decided to leave them alone and see what happens.

They’ve now been sent to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

These two moose calves were at the entrance to Denali National Park, when I was taking the bus to a sled dog demonstration. (The same day I also caught the grayling).



These photos were taken from a bus. I was not on foot.

When I was on foot in moose cow and calf country, I finally realized what it’s like to be a little dog wandering around white-tailed deer when the does give birth. At any moment, there could be a ticked off ungulate coming at me!

Update (8 July 16):  I had heard rumors that the moose calves’ mother had been shot. It is true, and because they were hanging out so close to people, the park captured them today for relocation.
