In early summer 2019, a pack of Eastern Wolves killed a yearling male Moose near the AWRS.  We quickly set-up a remote camera and stayed away from the carcass to document the wildlife that would be attracted. What followed over the next few days was quite remarkable. Be sure to check out the date and time stamps on the photos. From a full moose to bones in about a week! Those scavengers are efficient – nature wastes nothing! (click on the left or right side of the photos to navigate the slideshow)
