Dance of Death Zoom In 3

Last Stand
Photograph by Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott

Cold, crippled, and exhausted, the moose emerged from the bone-chilling water only to be hounded by one of the pack. When the wolf forced him to backpedal, the moose stumbled, then collapsed into the rushing river. A hundred feet (30 meters) downstream, the wolves managed to drag the immobile moose to the shallows. Ravenous, the wolves quickly ripped open the carcass and began to eat.
