Photographer captures Denali moose cow's desperate battle to save calf from wolf pack

AnchorageMay 9, 2013 

Fairbanks photographer Patrick Endres, who shot  photos of a dramatic battle between a mother moose and a wolf pack in Denali National Park in spring 2010, says via the U.K.'s Daily Mail: "The cow moose charged, stomped and splashed. Water was flying everywhere as the wolves attacked them from all angles. It was a real-time spectacle of nature unfolding before our eyes. The calf sought protection under the mum's belly, as she chased off the pack with her deadly hoofs. But the wolves were cunning and relentless." See the photos and watch the video at the Daily Mail.
