I suppose it’s not necessary to post photos of dead animals. But…
I came upon this Brush Wolf in the middle of Niles Bay. I assume he met an untimely demise due to natural circumstances. Maybe his larger cousin, the Grey Wolf, found him in a vulnerable position and took full advantage of the opportunity.
If you have spent anytime traveling on the lake this winter, it quickly becomes evident that such events are a fairly common occurrence. (Typically, the more traditional victim is the Whitetail Deer and with the perpetrator is, again, the well organized Grey Wolf.)
It is always surprising that these natural life events of our native woodland animals occur right out the back door.
