A game camera set up in a Swedish forest recently captured a life or death battle between two predatory wolves and a mother moose who does all she can to protect her calf from harm.
Warning: Dramatic footage ahead
As Swedish news site Nyheter24 notes, the moose mother made a valiant effort, but it’s likely that she lost this fight in the end.
Last year, another video of a brave moose mom fighting a losing battle to protect her calf from a wolf pack went viral after being posted on YouTube. At the time, many netizens noted that it was both a moving example of a mother's boundless love, but also a stark reminder of the sometimes-brutality of the circle of life.
