Check out this link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7213731.stm It's streamed, short video clips of Arctic wolves cooperatively hunting snow geese (sad, but natural) and then facing off against snowy owls.

Hi Julie,

Wow, does that bring back some incredible memories! I spent the summers of 1962 and '63 on Ellesmere Island (on the shores of beautiful Lake Hazen) and at one time I was actually surrounded by an arctic wolfpack! Needless to say they didn't get me cause I'm still here but it was an interesting experience nevertheless! As for birds, we saw lots of jaegers(SP?), arctic
terns and loons but no snowy owls, also saw muskox, foxes, arctic hares, butterflies, etc.
