    The Wolf pack hunts a hare video is viral on YouTube with 24 million views. A diet of leverets will not be enough to sustain a growing pup or feed an entire wolf pack, so bigger prey is needed. The problem is bigger prey like the Hare are incredibly agile and can run up to speeds of 60 km per hour. If this wolf pack is not going to go hungry, they will need to hunt as a unit. Watch the wolf pack hunts a hare video below.

    But by their aunts and uncles as well. Together, they try to ensure that each pup reaches near-adult size before the snow returns. A growing pup needs more than just a few leverets. The wolves need bigger prey and, to catch that… they must hunt as a pack. Adult hares may be easy to spot… But they are far from easy to catch.

    They run at 60 kilometers an hour. To catch one, the wolves work as a team. One of them gets close enough to bite the hare’s tail. But a hare can change direction in an instant. If it can continue to sidestep and jink, it may ultimately outlast them. Finally, it gets away. For the next hare, the whole pack gives chase. Now, numbers count. The lead wolves keep up the pace. Others run on either side, so the Hare can’t change direction. A tiny meal for a whole pack.
