Running down a meal: animals that hunt in packs
Safety—and success—in numbers
Pack hunters are predatory animals that hunt their prey by working together with other members of their species to secure a kill. Adopting focused and highly skilled tactics, these animals will group together to chase their quarry in a so-called collective method of hunting, which often involves stalking prey for hours, the idea being to tire the pursued into submission. Or it can mean a quick coordinated ambush of devastating efficiency. Either way, these are animals that come together for a common cause—to catch, kill, and eat! So what wildlife is most effective in working together to run down a meal?
