Death of a Legend

Top of page

The wolf is yet another species threatened by man and his technology, largely because of unfounded myths that have grown up around it. This film by Bill Mason disproves many of the fallacies. Studies by wildlife biologists reveal that the wolf helps maintain the balance of nature. The film contains some exceptional footage showing the wolf's life cycle and the social organization of the pack, as well as views of other wilderness animals: caribou, moose, deer, buffalo.

1971, 49 min 30 s
