Anyone want deer for dinner?

Dec 5, 2008 - by D.J.W.

This photo was taken by our neighbour. He watch three coyotes brush wolves chase a deer onto the lake, where it broke through the ice and was trapped, and then they killed it. The carcass of the deer has not yet been finished off, and the crows etc have also been enjoying the fruits of the coyotes brush wolves' labour.

Mother Nature at work...

Update Jan 1/09: these were not coyotes but are what are locally known as brush wolves - they are larger than coyotes and smaller than the classic wolf.
