Something I never noticed about caribou is how absolutely dense their coat is. I spent a good hour with a high powered blower trying to dry this guy and he was still damp after! They are certainly built to handle to cold.
Forlorn gray wolf in northern Ontario, Canada. This female, caught in a padded leg hold trap, is about to recieve a gps satellite radio collar. The individuals movements and predation events will be monitored as part of a woodland caribou conservation project.
