In late December 2016, a Moose was killed in a vehicle collision on Highway 60 in Algonquin Park. On January 5, 2017, this Moose was moved to the valley below the Visitor Centre. For Algonquin Park’s predators, winter can be a challenging time to find food. Animals feeding upon prey, either alive or dead, is rarely observed. Strategically placing a Moose carcass in an easily observable location, such as below the viewing deck at the Visitor Centre, provides a rare opportunity for visitors to watch in person or via the Algonquin Park Webcam.  Ravens, Eastern Wolves and Fishers have been feeding at the carcass, among other species.
