YouTube Video of the Week - Muskox vs. Wolves

I chose this clip due to the great responses to the To the Wolves or Whatever post of last week. That and I've discovered there's a disturbing lack of muskox on my hunting blog. Two birds, one stone.

Watching these arctic wolves bring down the muskox calf is startling. We've all seen plenty of crocodile attack videos where the victim simply disappears in the water amid bubbles and rolling mud.

Or the big cats of Africa - their assaults on a young impala or Tommy are downright civil compared with the wolves. The big dogs torment and harass and slowly gouge the muskox to death.
