When the herd tries to cross a river, the current is too much for the small calf. The youngster gets pulled downstream, away from the herd, and ends up stranded on a small rocky island in the stream.

The mother continues on with the herd, not noticing the absence of her calf until it is too late.

The wolf won’t relent, however. It doesn’t seem likely that the calf can handle this attack for too long…
