This clip captures the heart-stopping moment a wolf, hungry for its next meal, attacks a bison calf separated from the herd.
But in an amazing series of events, the baby, instead of attempting to outrun the predator, puts up a daring fight and manages to hold his own until the mother bison charges onto the scene and scares the inexperienced wolf away.
