Wolves and Ravens

Exposing the Big Game

The relationship between ravens and wolves has been a topic of comments on a post about a Petition to Stop the Slaughter of Ravens in Idaho. Whenever I’ve seen wolves on a carcass in Yellowstone, ravens are right there with them to cash in and help clean up. The ravens lead in turn wolves to potential meals, letting them do the dirty work they aren’t equipped for.

Here’s a photo of the two together in Yellowstone’s Hayden Valley…

  4. I know that this is somewhat irreverent to the topic of wolves and ravens, but did you hear that the Alexander Archipelago Wolf (Canis lupus ligoni) might get added on the Endangered Species List? Here’s the news article about it: http://www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-alaska-wolf-protection-20140328,0,4661133.story
