This video was posted to LiveLeak two days ago and illustrates just how creative a predator the wolf can be. According to the post: "Remote cameras planted by a British Columbia environmental group have captured a wolf capturing one of the spawning salmon in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest.
One of the biggest misconceptions about outdoorsmen and women is that they don’t care about wildlife. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Hunters and anglers love wildlife. They support the land and the waters with their passion -- and their money. They are animal lovers in the truest sense of the term.
A beautiful example of this came on September 30 when three Alaskan fishermen spent nearly four hours doing all that they could to free a stranded killer whale that had beached itself on rocks.
Greg Chase and his family got quite the surprise when an elk took to their backyard trampoline in Evergreen, Colo. Mr. Chase posted a video to YouTube on November 4 of what he and family witnessed.

Once on the instrument of bounce, the animal had a difficult time getting off.
Tourists on African safaris have been turning out YouTube fodder for years and this video is certain to end up a classic. An unlucky warthog gets pinned down on the banks of what seems to be a big watering hole by a pack of wild dogs.

The state of Florida is on the cusp of breaking a record that has stood for 30 years. If no one is killed by an alligator in the Sunshine State for the rest of the year, Florida will have gone five years without an alligator fatality, according to ABC Action News.
The last person to succumb to an alligator attack did so in 2007. Three people were killed by alligators in just one week the year prior, 2006.
Wisconsin wolf hunters are doing so well this year that the season might end early leaving those wanting to hunt with hounds out in the cold.
Two weeks after the season opened on October 15, hunters and trappers have filled 71 percent of the quota allotted by the Department of Natural Resources, according to Madison.com. This equates 178 wolves and is a much higher kill rate than last year. In 2012, hunters took 41 wolves or 35 percent of the state’s quota of 116 animals. This year’s quota is 251. Hunters have been so successful this year that the state has already closed three of its six wolf hunting/trapping zones. Last year the DNR didn’t have to close any zones until November 16.
Howling for Wolves, an anti-wolf hunting and trapping group, will be the Minnesota Timberwolves’ “nonprofit of the game” for their home opener against the Orlando Magic tonight.
The group paid $2,000 for a 30-second public service announcement on the Target Center’s big screen — to encourage basketball fans to visit their booth in order to sign a petition to stop Minnesota’s upcoming wolf season, sctimes.com reports.
