First-ever video shows wolves fishing in Voyageurs National Park

In another stunning revelation of wolf behavior from northern Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park, researchers Thursday announced they have confirmed park wolves hunting for and eating fish out of streams as a regular part of their diet. The researchers released the first-ever video of wolves eating freshwater fish, and said GPS data shows one pack spent about half their time during several weeks in April and May “hunting” in creeks for spawning suckers and northern pike.
