Wolves' Hunting Tactics

Wolves have always been a fascinating subject for me. What are they really like? How does a wolf survive? We know they are hunters, and they do that in packs. Does that take much intelligence to do? And why do they do it? There are so many questions, and this video answers some. Now we can get a good look into the way they hunt.

Wolves are the ancestors, and the cousins, to our friends the dogs. They seem to be similar to us in so many ways. Wolves have been our rivals and our friends. And the human race seems to identify with them maybe more than any other creature on Earth. Maybe that is why we so easily accepted them and let them become our friends the dogs. This video shows how the still wild wolves hunt, and the tactics they use to trap their prey.

  1. Wolves resemble dog, and we....

    We are very close to monkeys....


  2. I've always liked wolves, although I've never met one personally but I have several pictures of them hanging on my walls

  3. Wolves are magnificent creatures. I first heard their song on the Arctic slope about twenty miles south of Barrow.

    I noticed at the end of this video there is a link to another video on aerial wolf hunting. It is a shame we have hunted these beautiful animals to the brink of extinction.

    I was just reading another article that you might find interesting Ratty. http://howlingforjustice.wordpress.com/2010/11/06/meet-the-wolffacts-not-fiction/

    Howling for Justice is trying to educated people and save the wolves.

  4. I love wolves too, when I was a child we lived in the north and were blessed to hear them nightly. We were visited one night by a Timber wolf when they were still around and the footprint was so huge my parents put a bucket over it to show everyone.
