Predator and Prey by LoneWolfPhotography Predator and Prey by LoneWolfPhotography
Kenai, the newest addition to the wolf pack at the Oregon Zoo poses only feet away from a male Elk which, in the wild, his pack would try to take down if possible. The Elk keeps a close eye on Kenai's activity as well.

Kenai will soon become a magnificent wolf and I suspect, from the size of his paws, that he will be quite huge. At only 8 months, he is already larger than his possesive packmate, Yazhi, who is now about 2 years old.

Did he... maybe throw himself at the fence and go insane? No? I hope not? Sorry I'm so weird. :woohoo:

No more weird than me taking 6 months to reply! :lol: My apologies for my long long absence. :bow: To answer your question, everyone thought it might cause trouble when they were put so close together but they took it really well and no, he didn't go insane OR get tangled in the fence. :D

In the beginning, it was quite interesting to see their reactions, but I think now they've all gotten used to the idea that they can't get at each other so they rarely even pay attention to each other that much any more. :nod:

He's so handsome! I love the look of black wolves!! :heart: Just from the pic you can tell he's gonna be a big boy when he's older.
It's so sad that they stuck the wolves next to some of their natural prey. The scent must torture both sets of creatures. They should at least make it so they can't see one another.

I wondered about that too....if being so close to food that's unattainable would just drive them crazy. I know they can't understand WHY they can't get at the elk. Fortunately, they seem to have gotten used to the idea and pay less and less attention to their closeness. :nod:

Well at least it doesn't bother them as much anymore. Hey did you hear about where they put the seals next to the polar bears? The bears couldn't see them but could smell them. The bears went crazy! Literally they went into fits and one even attacked a keeper. The poor things....

lovely capture!

I was wondering about the placement,too, seems like a bit cruelty to the elk - always on the alert and to the wolf - dinner just out of reach...I'd think there would be constant frustration with the accompanying stress...

I saw a mountain lion at a small zoo here, pacing back and forth against the back fence...while watching her, I finally realized there was a park on the other side of the fence and a couple of people were standing there with their little yappy dog. The lion WANTED that dog - to the point that she was drooling and heavily panting by the time the people moved on...[link]
