Ethiopian Wolf in Bale Mountains NP, 15/10/14

[i]Canis simensis[/i] A series of shots showing a wolf hunting for burrowing rodents, and eventually getting one (though it seemed to take it by surprise, so we suspect it wasn?t the animal it was originally pursuing!). The wolf hunted by placing its front paws in one exit of the burrow then intently watching the other exit(s) for the inhabitant making its getaway. When it was getting close to catching something it started tail-wagging furiously, exactly like an over-excited terrier!
