Motorist Captures Rare Footage Of Lone Wolf Chasing Down And Killing Bighorn Sheep in Kananaskis Country, Alberta
This is truly a National Geographic moment! These motorists caught a rare wolf attack on camera while driving down Highway 40 en route to their campsite for the night in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada. Wild!
The lone wolf chases a herd of bighorn sheep down the highway. After separating one bighorn sheep from the herd, it goes in for the kill, taking it down on the side of the highway – just missing vehicles. The wolf takes the sheep down and drags it into the thick Canadian forest. Brutal, but real.

Alberta Environment and Parks estimates that there are 7000 wolves in Alberta. Wolves are rarely spotted and footage like this is very rare. Nature is amazing. #neature
