Wolf den with 5 pups under ancient cedar tree #Video
Thinking of warm spring Northwoods days and counting wolf pups on this wintry Monday morning in Voyageurs where it is -22 F outside but feels like -39 F with the wind.
This Paradise Den, located under the roots of an ancient cedar, is undoubtedly one of the coolest dens we have visited so far! Would be really interesting to know how long wolves have used this old tree as a den!
Regardless, we feel very fortunate to have trail cameras to document the happenings at this den when we are not there. Before the advent of trail camera technology and GPS-collars, observing/documenting scenes such as this in forested places like northern Minnesota were extremely difficult.
Luckily, things have changed a bit. And on this winter day, we look forward to spring and documenting, studying, and sharing with everyone the pups of the Greater Voyageurs Ecosystem!
