I was going through some footage from this summer and put these clips together which show wolves fishing for salmon. I was lucky enough to actually capture a wolf grabbing a huge chum salmon with
my video camera. I have only seen a few catches in my years, and this was the first time I had a camera ready.
Wolves are not nearly as effective at catching salmon as brown bears, and often lose fish while chasing them. They more often settle for scraps left behind by bears. The bears seem to ignore the wolves while they are fishing.
Great video of the wolves hunting salmon. Thanks
Brad, never knew wolves ate seafood, very interesting.
Brad — that is incredible footage. I hope to be back up there with you one of these seasons.
Very nice work. Great catching the wolf in action. I hope to get back to Katmai next summer
Wow, wished I was there with you this summer. Hopefully we can find them next time.
Talk to you later.
Brad, great footage of the bears and wolves! It’s amazing to see them so close and without paying any mind to each other. Amazing shots of the wolf actually catching the salmon.
Great footage, Brad! Thanks for sending it. It was surprising to me that the bears did not mind the wolves being there with them and the wolves were not afraid of the bears. Sorry I missed you in Winnipeg! Mary Ann
Great video, Brad. As an expert on animals, you bring us lots of fun. The video reminds me our time together tracking wild pandas in a panda reserve in China. I just came back from Kenya of Africa and got a great time there. I have seen all the ‘Big Five” in Kenya and taken lots of bird photos. I hope I have chance to share these pictures with you.
My study of wildlife has been for 36 years. This study has been my own field study as well as my passion to save what exist here on this planet. Though I have persued other careers my passion still lies with our true existence of this earth. I for one can not deny our own means of survival. I as a mere human being can honestly say without the circle of life whether created by god or a swirl of dust and gases that however it came about we can not exist without that perfect balance of nature. We are only a small existence of a wide existing universe which is impossible to control. So why control the only living beautiful planet that we know exist
Absolutely wonderful .Thank you so much for sharing that!
Thanks for posting this.
It was great watching it.
