  1. 1. Cougarvs.Wolf Pack<br />Heather Jackson<br />Sandrick<br />11/16/09<br />
  2. 2. This summer my parents and I went to Wolf Park in Battleground, IN. At Wolf Park I got to observe live wolves in some semblance of their natural habitat.<br />I have never seen a cougar, but one of my favorite animals are the big cats.<br />MyExperience<br />
  3. 3. Where and what do both animals hunt?<br />How do cougars hunt their prey?<br />How do wolves hunt their prey?<br />Which is better to hunt in a pack or by oneself?<br />QuestionsthatArose<br />
  4. 4. Cougars have one of the largest ranges of any large terrestrial mammal. From the Yukon (Canada) in the North to to the Southern Andes in South America.<br />Cougars eat deer, elk, bighorn sheep, domestic cattle, horses and sheep as well as rodents and insects.<br />Where/What do Cougars live/eat?<br />
  5. 5. Wolves live just about everywhere in the world, but mostly in the Northern regions.<br />Wolves also eat large prey mammals such as deer, elk, as well as domestic animals such as pigs, sheep, and cattle.<br />Where/What do Wolves live/eat?<br />
  6. 6. How do cougars hunt their Prey?<br />Cougars are carnivores meaning they only eat meat.<br />Cougars kill prey every two weeks (without cubs) or every three days (with cubs)<br />Cougars are not scavengers but more opportunistic hunters, if a carcass is left unattended then the cougar will eat from it.<br />Cougars are ambush predators. It stalks its prey through trees, ledges and other covered areas before leaping onto the preys back and suffocating it.<br />
  7. 7. How do wolves hunt their Prey?<br />Wolves hunt in Packs that usually consist of six to ten individuals.<br />A single wolf can devour 2o pounds (9 kilograms) of meat in one sitting. A pack could potentially devour 120 (54) to 200 (90) pounds (kilograms) of meet in a sitting<br />Wolves can go up to 2 weeks without eating.<br />Wolves chase down their prey till the prey is too tired to run and then kill the prey by suffocation.<br />

  9. 9. In researching this subject, I noticed that both animals where adapted to the way they collected food.<br />It didn’t seem that either animal got more food than the other.<br />It doesn’t matter whether an animal hunts by itself or with a pack.<br />WhichisBetter? ToHunt in aPack? orbyoneself?<br />
