Very interesting post from Voyageurs Wolf Project about how wolf V083 has become a beaver hunting specialist.

www.facebook.com/VoyageursWolfProject/posts/819254748899876Wolf V083, the breeding male of the Cranberry Bay Pack, has shattered a project record! He has now killed 36 beavers since May 1st and he will likely kill a few more as we continue following him until the end of October. The previous record was 28 beavers in a summer (April-October) by Wolf V028, who was the breeding male of the Moose River Pack until 2018 when the pack dissolved.

To put 36 beavers in perspective: a typical beaver colony in the Greater Voyageurs Ecosystem has ~5 beavers so V083 has killed the equivalent of 7 beaver colonies. Though that is a lot of beavers, the Cranberry Bay territory generally has >150 beaver colonies. That is, there are a lot of beavers were he lives and he has likely only killed <5% of the beaver population!

The Cranberry Bay Pack has 3 adult members so even if the other 2 pack members were record-setting beaver hunters like V083, the total impact on the beaver population would likely be <15%, which is not enough to result in a decline in the beaver population. Typically, >22-25% of a beaver population has to be removed by predation/harvesting to result in a population decline. In this case, we know that V083 is clearly an anomaly as most other wolves are not even close to as good at catching beavers, meaning the pack likely removed <8-10% of the beaver population this summer. Not enough to have much of an impact at all but still pretty interesting!

Moi Kentällä group! I am looking for a resident / frequent visitor of the Oulanka Research Station to i) consult on research permits, and ii) to extract, dry and send small pieced of wood 6x times during the next field season: every two weeks in June-August 2021. Experiment setup and postage costs are on the project, only 6x sample extraction and drying, and 1x parcel sending is needed. Our project offers co-authorship in i) methods paper and ii) data paper.
