SUMMER FOOD HABITS OF WOLVES WITH THE EMPHASIS ON MOOSE IN RIDING MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK
Analyses of wolf scats collected in summer in Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba, show that moose a relatively rare prey item. This immunity extends to the calves, and a fall classified count has shown a ratio of calves:100 cows of 34.6. Predation pressures are absorbed by less well defended species: elk and beaver are abundant and heavily preyed upon.
