Minnesota wildlife on camera from the Voyageurs Wolf Project

While the weather outside is scary, with several more inches of snow possible Wednesday night, the people at Voyageurs Wolf Project released a video that might help remind you of warmer, less snowy times. 

The montage from fall (watch it in the player above) shows some of northern Minnesota’s favorite residents: beavers, wolves, moose, and deer.

Voyageurs says the footage of the Shoepack Lake Pack, the two adults and the five pups, traveling together is some of the most valuable footage. Seeing the five pups still alive is unusual as the pups’ parents typically can’t gather enough food to feed that many mouths.

The Voyageurs Wolf Project is a research project through the University of Minnesota aimed at furthering an understanding of wolf behavior, specifically how wolves spend their summer. The organization shares its discoveries on social media and near-daily videos and photos from its trail cameras of wolves and other animals that call Minnesota home, amassing a large and loyal group of followers.
