Dance of Death Zoom In 1

Nowhere to Run
Photograph by Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott

To escape his pursuers, a young bull moose waded into the chilly waters of the Teklanika River in Alaska's Denali National Park and Preserve. Two weeks earlier, a pack of wolves had attacked him, ripping open his right thigh, but that failed to bring him down. Now he's trapped: The river's frigid glacial waters will quickly sap the moose's strength if he doesn't move to dry land—but the wolves will threaten again if he does.
