Got a great video for you today, folks.

Photographer Dave Nystedt was shooting some scenic footage in Northern Ontario when he happened upon a lone moose standing near shore.

The moose sighting was exciting enough, but just as Dave was about to leave the scene, it got a whole lot more interesting.

A lone wolf came bounding out of the woods and attacked the moose.

Fight starts at about 0:50. Check it out:

 

 

The cow moose tries to stomp the wolf, but to no avail.

The wolf—-likely a female–gets through the cow moose’s defenses and latches onto her front right leg.

It’s interesting seeing the wolf figure out that she’s safe underneath the cow moose. The cow is defenseless, and after failing to fend off the determined wolf, decides to run.

The cow moose has a huge advantage running in water, and pulls away from the wolf.

The wolf looks to shore several times during the rumble. Perhaps she was expecting help? Or maybe she was keeping an eye on her cubs—-who, as it turns out, were hanging out on the railroad tracks near the water’s edge.

The cow moose escapes. She’s safe for now—or is she? Any one of those bite wounds could eventually cripple the moose.

Very cool video either way.
