One day, he woke up at 2.00 am and started his journey towards the riverbank. Fortunately, with the daybreak he arrived at the exact spot where he witnessed the particular incident. Seth was surprised and started to capture pictures of the dark big ball. Suddenly, a large grey wolf appeared through the thick forest, maybe due to the smell of the decaying animal.

Seth is an interesting person who is amazed by the views of nature. But, this was his first meet-up with a wolf. He shared his experience as follows; “It was very exciting. I have encountered black bears while camping several times over the years, but they are relatively harmless in most situations. I’ve only come across grizzly bears a few times and only in Yellowstone Park. All that to say I will still generally carry bear spray on my person when hiking in potential bear country.”

According to Seth, the grizzly hadn’t moved even due to the interruption caused by the wolf. “As large as it was, the grizzly knew a single wolf wasn’t any kind of threat. The wolf seemed to have a mischievous, playful demeanour. As if it was a game. It would slowly get as close as it could to the elk carcass, achieving a distance of mere inches from it before the bear would stir slightly and send the wolf quickly retreating.”

As per the hypothesis of the animal scientists, both wolves and bears coexist. But this varies according to their age, hunger, sex and aggressiveness. But, during this encounter the wolf went back into the forest without creating any scene.

How fortunate is Seth to experience such a fascinating once-in-a-lifetime opportunity?
