A Few Interesting Wolf Videos

From Defenders of Wildlife:

Defenders donated flag fencing known as fladry to the Washington Department of Wildlife. They tested the fladry's effectiveness by stringing it around a cow carcass -- an irresistible temptation for a hungry wolf. The results speak for themselves, providing documentary video evidence that nonlethal tools really do prevent conflict between wolves and livestock:

 From the International Wolf Center:

The wolves have certainly been active lately and it might have something to do with the February sun. Even though we had temperatures down to -28 below zero Fahrenheit, the next day the temperatures reach 26 degrees and with a warm sun, the wolves were in an extremely good mood. Staff were happy as well, enjoy this clip, it has several minutes of howling.
