Russian Wolf Hunt (1910)Documentary, Short · 16 November 1910
The bunting party is divided into two contingents, one of which pursues the wolves on horseback with a set of dogs, whilst the individual members of the second party remain on the outskirts of the wood with the attacking dogs held in leash. These dogs, of the greyhound type, are of a mixed English and Russian breed, and as the wolves are driven out of the wood, they dash forward to attack them. Fearless of cruel fangs, they will spring at a wolf and bear him to the ground almost before their masters have time to reach the spot with their lassos in their hands. Another second, however, and the beast will be captured; a wedge is then forced between its teeth, and in the evening, together with several other captives, it will be brought back, still living, amidst the joyous barking of the dogs, and the rattling of sleigh bells, and the shouts of the hunters.
