A black wolf howling gives some of the most hair-raising trail cam footage you’ll ever see.
We’ve probably all seen wolves howling in the movies or on nature documentaries. It’s always a cool sight, but seeing a wolf stopping to howl on a trail cam just ratchets up the awesome meter a bit.
A striking black wolf pads silently past a trail camera set up by Chris Borger, presumably in Alberta, Canada, where Borger resides.
It steps toward the edge of a clearing, partially concealing all but its upper body and head, when suddenly…
This beautiful wolf’s mournful howl saturates the surrounding forest as it echoes and lingers in the air. It’s haunting, beautiful, powerful and even a little scary.
No matter where you may stand on the management of wolves, there is no denying that they are a potent symbol of all that is wild and untamed.
Share this with a friend and watch their reaction as the wolf moves like a ghost in front of the camera and then breaks into its series of piercing, lonesome howls.
