Wolves fishing at 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 project has determined that wolves will also leave deer and moose alone if they can catch beavers. Fish -and blueberries- help to round out their diet when other foods are not available.

Wolves are known to eat spawning salmon in coastal British Columbia and Alaska, but wolves hunting freshwater fish has not been described in detail before.
