Algonquin Park Live Webcam
The death of one animal is an opportunity for others...
In the days ahead, Algonquin Park Webcam viewers can watch as predators, including the potential for Algonquin (Eastern) Wolves, feed upon a Moose found dead along the edge of Highway 60 and placed in the valley below the Algonquin Park Visitor Centre on January 5, 2017. A pack of wolves was heard howling in the valley on January 15, 2017 with one wolf observed by Park visitors on Fork Lake (see panorama image for location).
This strategic placement of a Moose carcass during the winter has taken place several times before and has attracted various scavengers that depend upon the misfortunes of others to survive Algonquin Park's harsh winter conditions. Species observed in the area of the carcass have included Common Ravens, Red Fox, Fisher, American Marten, Bald Eagle, and Algonquin (Eastern) Wolves. Watch for additional wildlife sightings below and record you sightings on our Facebook page.
