These photos were sent by a dentist in Rawlins , Wyoming . Eagles move in around Rawlins in the winter, and there's been a lot of discussion about them taking antelope and even livestock like sheep and lambs. These photos were taken by a handball buddy of Bill, and will make you a believer. They have been sent to the Wyo Dept Wildlife.

           
These were emailed to me with the following text: 2011 South Dakota bull elk taken during the 2011 rifle season. The additional pictures show evidence of this bull previously being in a fight with another bull elk. The other elk broke his antler off in this elk's head. The taxidermist is guessing that the broken antler had been imbedded at least one, if not two, years. The "extra" antler was found to be piercing the skull just behind the left eye of this elk but the surface had healed to the point of not being noticeable.




From what I gather these "Dinner and a Date" photos were taken in Alberta, Canada.  Lat 4 pics are rated R!


This picture came from my brother, Dick in Casper.  It's either a frog with a hare problem or a hare with a frog problem!



Good thing it doesn't have a bow!

Here's the story that came with this photo set...Here is a buck that a hunter got in Wisconsin . He sent these pictures to a bunch of people to see what he could get and the owner of Cabelas paid him $13,000 for the head and hide.



This mangy bear has lost his hair!  Thanks Tiffany!

  

This one has been around the internet for some time...turns out to be a photoshop hoax! Thanks for the info Mike!

              

                     

  Hi everyone: A couple of evenings ago, Wayne went out to check the cows and saw a very strange sight and was able to photograph the event.  A black bear approached our cow herd which turned out to be a very big mistake on his part. The blonde and white Simmental cow we know as I-12.  She is a very good cow, a very attentive mother and about 12 years old.  She's in her prime and knows that bears are bad news.  She went right for him and tried her best to mash him into the ground.  A younger cow, R-55, an Angus -Cross cow, age 7, is helping her out as best she can.  It is an incredible photo to see two cows at once trying to crush the bear.  There are a couple of photos where the bear is biting I-12's leg and clawing her face but she is not giving up.  Her stiff tail shows how agitated she is.  Wayne said all the cows were bawling, the bear was squealing, the calves were running around with their tails in the air.  Finally, the bear decided to vacate the area.  We thought he'd be dead for sure, but there was no sign of him the next day.  We'll have to keep an eye out for eagles in the trees or flocks of ravens flying up.  We're sure he's got some broken ribs out of the deal at the very least.  I looked up the calving records of both cows who are so aggressive in these photos and they are both good, calm cows around us and have given us no troubles whatsoever.   I'll have to add in my notes that they have a very distinct dislike of bears.  We'll be watching I-12 over the next few days to see if she needs treatment for infection.  I don't know how willingly she'll come to the corrals for treatment, but she might not have a choice.  Wayne couldn't believe his eyes when he witnessed this ruckus.  This is another once-in-a-lifetime photography event to add to all the others he managed to document this summer.  It is amazing.  Cathy
Editor note...anyone know these folks and the location of these photos?     

         
Amazing!

         

This is one tough doe!

              
Croc watching!

              
For your viewing enjoyment...supposedly the pictures were taken in Colorado Springs.  Thanks to Daryl.

           
       
This  Ranger is assigned to prevent poaching around the  wildlife refuge area of Lanseria  , South  Africa  . The way these animals interact with him is absolutely  stunning! The lions seem to know he’s there to protect  them. His charm works with hyenas and leopards too.  Hyenas are usually vicious.

           
A person named Carol writes: A few weeks ago our friends in Casper, WY mentioned that they had seen lion tracks in the snow on their deck behind the house.  They live on Casper Mountain just south of, and overlooking Casper.  Then a few days ago they mentioned that one of their neighbors across the road had seen a lion in the driveway in front of their house.  About an hour ago they sent the pictures below.  The last picture is behind their house where I think they first saw the tracks.  This is one pretty good sized cat.  His apparent lack of fear or respect for people makes for an uncomfortable feeling when you go outside in the middle of the day.  He appears to be in good condition.



He has the antler tine of another bull broken off in his head. (ouch)

        
These were taken near Meteetse, Wy. by Fred Thomas of Meteetse.

     
If a tree falls in the forest.........thanks Bryan!  

           

This is a bull that was found on the Uinta County Youth Camps property, 25 miles south of Mountain View, Wyoming, originally called in as poaching. I have never seen such carnage, the dead bull had blood and chunks o fat and hide on his antlers leaving me to believe the victor may have hobbled off and died elsewhere. The ground was tore up in every direction for a 50 yards and it looked as if the dead bull had possibly fallen after a couple of small trees gave way. The bull had several gore wounds to his chest, abdomen, neck and head. He also had his entire brisket ripped open.  The plan is to donate the antlers to the Youth Camp who has acquired a free European mount from a local taxidermist to hang in the camps main lodge. The mount will be accompanied by less bloody photos of scene and a write up about natural
breeding selection and how this can occur for the kids to read.

  
Trail closed due to traffic jam!  Photos were taken during the 2008-2009 winter by Mr. Frédéric Morneau in the whitetail deer winter yard situated near the falls of Portes-de-l’Enfer section of the Rimouski River, near the locality of Saint-Narcisse-de-Rimouski (in the southeastern part of the Province of Québec, Canada).
After a series of violent and abundant snowstorms, deer hunters went in that winter yard on snowmobiles to distribute specially mixed survival meals for the deer. The pictures show deer eating in the trail opened by the hunters/snowmobilers. Thanks to Andre for the info!
