But back to the footage so compellingly captured by Nystedt. Despite the moose’s best efforts, the wolf won’t let go as it continues to move in circles in the deeper part of the lake. However, although the predator is seemingly in command of the situation, its quarry finally finds a way to break free. Specifically, the moose takes advantage of the deeper water by dipping its body beneath the surface, causing the wolf to lose its fearsome grip.
The moose then begins to limp away from its attacker as the wolf appears to try and regain its senses. Then, when the predator seems to recover, another chase ensues, albeit at a rather slower pace than the initial face-off. With the drone, meanwhile, continuing to hover above the two animals, the moose moves into an even deeper area of the lake, leaving the wolf trailing.
