🌄 A massive pack of 25 timberwolves hunting  bison on the Arctic circle in northern Canada. In mid-winter in Wood  Buffalo National Park temperatures hover around -40C. The wolf pack, led  by the alpha female, travel single-file through the deep snow to save  energy. The size of the pack is a sign of how rich their prey base is  during winter when the bison are more restricted by poor feeding and  deep snow. The wolf packs in this National Park are the only wolves in  the world that specialise in hunting bison ten times their size. They  have grown to be the largest and most powerful wolves on earth.
