A very interesting documentary to illustrate the techniques of wolves hunting. The first scene shows while isolating a small bison but adults and mother save it. Then see a wounded adult isolate and using their technique to cause profound wounds in the perineum area. With this technique, the animal quickly loses a lot of blood and consequently the forces.

This documentary is charming and talks about the Polar Night. It is By RT Documentaries and let me tell you is very well made.
Ok someone can tell is not strictly wild but for me is an error. The northern place, even if inhabited by the civilized community like Murmansk, is wild and in the documentary is explained well.
The big difference from other sides of the polar circle is the population, the people of Murmansk are moderns. They use the progress to create a more comfortable environment during the long polar night. Yes, you can imagine, for example, is simple enough to switch on the artificial light and is ok but is false.
Effects on the metabolism of the Polar Night
Our body has some hours of the night and some hours of daylight typically. It needs the sun, and all the metabolism is balanced well. So you can have sweet dreams in the night time, and you are very active during daylight. When the night is 4 months long for the local people body’s it is severe stress. James is trying on himself the problems of the Arctic Night. The big question is how to make our body accustomed to this extreme condition.
So now maybe it is more clear why life, even in the new and comfortable condition, is wild. The documentary follows showing the observation of the Aurora Borealis during the Polar Night. This vast and spectacular effect come from mother nature.
What the Aurora Borealis is
The charged particles collision causes the Aurora Borealis effect. Generally, these particles are electrons and protons. When the electrons collide with the atoms, the atoms have excited, and when they are de-energized, they release energy in the shape of light. Generally green and sometimes red, it depends on the wavelength.
The documentary ends showing the joy and the parties by the local people at the first sunrise of the year. It demonstrates how much is waited and fundamental the sun.
