HEADS UP: This video shows raw footage of animals doing what animals do to survive.
It’s pretty rare that we really get to see predators and prey in a real time example of survival but this lucky family captured it on video. In the video we see a herd of bighorn sheep running along Highway 40 in Kananaskis, Alberta. The most remarkable part though is the wolf giving chase in full view of a few vehicles.
As the wolf singles out a sheep at the back of the pack, the chase cuts across the road and the wolf attacks, seeming to break the neck of its prey. After taking a moment to catch its breath, the wolf then grabs the still-breathing animal by its body and drags it into the forest off the side of the road.
While it is certainly violent, it is a truly amazing glimpse into the circle of life in a very pure form.
