Wildlife Photo Contest Results

Go here for the winners of a national wildlife photography contest sponsored by BBC Wildlife and London's Natural History museum. The winning photo: a wolf in mid-leap while on a hunting expedition.

But my heart smiled at the cat busy defending her territory...from a fox! Her 'pet,' a wildlife ranger, spent five months in a nature reserve in Kamchatka, and took Ryska (the cat) along with him. He explained, "...the animals were curious about the area's new residents, and drawn by cooking smells from the cabin. The foxes in particular would visit every day. When they came within 20m, that was her boundary and chased them. It was really funny - foxes were climbing trees to get away from the cat."
