The undertaking launched the “beautiful” footage on social media in addition to YouTube:
“We not often see black wolves in our space so seeing this black wolf with its seemingly shaggy coat, particularly round its legs and toes, was fairly neat!” the Voyageurs Wolf Venture wrote in its YouTube description.
The undertaking is an effort by the College of Minnesota to study the wolves in and round Voyageurs Nationwide Park in Minnesota.
The footage exhibits the wolf pacing, trying round, after which briefly pawing on the snow earlier than pulling one thing out and working off with the item in its mouth.
The group mentioned in response to a query on Twitter that the item was doubtless “a rock or one thing.”
