See the First Camera Collar Footage From a Wild Wolf
If you ever wanted to experience the life of a wolf, this footage will get you pretty close. Via Gizmodo:
A few wolves in Minnesota will now record their summer exploits, thanks to an exciting project from researchers from the Voyageurs Wolf Project. This week, the group released the first-ever footage captured by a collar on a wild wolf. The candid movies, which will continue this year, will hopefully provide some insight into the daily lives of these adaptable creatures, such as their recently discovered habit of freshwater fishing.
The Voyageurs Wolf Project, led by scientists at the University of Minnesota, is intended to fill in one of the largest mysteries about wolves living in North America, particularly those living inside the Voyageurs National Park: how they spend their summer months.
