2022—Trail in the Snow

When we arrived at the edge of the Lamar River where the Elk carcass was half submerged, a small pack of Coyotes was nearby, drinking from an area of open water. Then, one by one, they followed a narrow trail in the snow to return to feed on the carcass. Once the trail is cleared, it’s easier for the animals to use and they don’t have to waste energy breaking a new path.
