Wolf watching’s main man lets up
From the Jackson Hole News and Guide:
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK— The deep, raspy roars of two grizzly bears battling on their hind legs are audible from hundreds of yards away.
It’s just before 7:30 on an early April morning as Rick McIntyre shuffles through the snow up to the drama, capped by a black wolf opportunistically eating on what’s left of a bison carcass that spurred the skirmish. Any banter that rises above a whisper (I learn firsthand) is quickly shushed. The scene unfolds at the so-called “Bob’s knob” rise overlooking the low reaches of Slough Creek, where around two dozen devoted cameramen and wolf-watchers are entranced, along with a few lucky folks passing by.
