Fresh Wolf Scat

Fresh Wolf Canis lupus scat, Bieszczady Mountains, south-east Poland, November 2008. Note the sloppy nature of the dropping which indicates that it is recent. The fur and hair content and the grey colour are typical for Wolf. Wolves leave their scat in prominent places such as on bare trails or even roads to serve as visual signs to other wolves. Such scats found in areas where there are large domestic or feral dogs are difficult to identify.
