Nature can be a cruel animal.
Beautiful but cruel. Something like this is spectacular, rare and intense at the same time.
A family was driving down a road near Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada when they came across a pack of bighorns running down the road and being chased by a wolf.
Gray wolves are an apex predator that can run up to 35 miles per hour in spurts. A bighorn can only go up to 20 miles per hour. Yeah they never really had a chance and that chase game.
Slowly but surely this wolf is gaining inch by inch ground. The sheep at the end of the row could sense the wolf coming and cut off to try to get away. The wolf follows and quickly takes it down for the count.
The mother in the car casually tells her children what’s going on.
“He wants to kill, boys.”
She’s not wrong…
Well, I think everyone has to learn their nature at some point.
This is pretty crazy footage and something you rarely see, especially on a street.
The wolf takes a second to catch his breath, then like his light work, he hooks onto the sheep and pulls himself up to the tree line. It pauses for a brief bite and then pulls it further into the forest.
And just think… these are basically dogs.
