The northern hawk owl is an especially dangerous predator if you’re a rodent, shrew or small bird. Hawk owls can spot their next meal from half a mile away, and have excellent hearing. From the top branches of a tall spruce tree, they can hear and locate their prey under a full twelve inches of snow. They hunt during both night and day, and typically do not occur in the lower 48.

Wolves are opportunistic animals and will make an appearance in populated areas from time to time, to capitalize on an easy meal. A wolf pack’s territory can range up to 1,000 miles, and they have been known to travel even further in pursuit of caribou herds. From Katmai National Park’s Facebook page.
