Fishing wolves

Wolves Prefer Salmon to Deer?

Even the authors believed salmon would be an alternative prey, reserved for times when deer were scarce. Darimont said he and his team were "absolutely shocked" to find that the wolves seemed to prefer salmon in the fall, when the fish are migrating upstream to spawn. "The deer are there," he said. "They could persist on deer."

The wolves are smart, hence the eat fish, a brain food. Or is that the other way around?
