Action image of a bull bison charging, with motion blur of a wolf jumping out of the way…the bull repeatedly drove this wolf away from the sick female in the background. Fortunately, the bull finished his goodbyes in a timely manner and the female, who was clearly suffering from an illness, allowed the wolf to recycle her back into the ecosystem with no injury to the wolf. For hours, grizzly bears, eagles, coyotes, ravens, and the wolves fed on this bison…the wolves had pups to feed nearby as well. The ravens carried off bright red pieces of bison flesh and stuffed them into the surrounding dark green pine trees for storage, which, in-turn, fed many other animals/insects living in the trees.
