Looks set up to me, hard to believe that a wolf couldn't lead dogs (even Borzoi) on a longer chase than that unless it was starving (possible). But what wolf runs out of brush (with human heads popping up behind him) INTO the face of a bunch of dogs and horsemen? 1910 version of canned hunt I think.
Every mighty oak was once a nut that stood its ground.

Of course it's *fake*... any edited film is *fake* if you are going to be that way about it. The way I see it, is that it is a very interesting antique documentary of wolf hunting techniques in 1910 Russia. There isn't much point asking- "How did that cameraman get positioned on the far side of a plain and happen to have a wolf chased by dogs come straight to him!?"
I was curious how the dogs would be released at the time of the chase- I would if the leashes were doubled back.
Oh goody. Don't give the warped minds in my state any ideas. We are on the cusp of allowing dogs to hunt wolves here in WI. So far wolves have killed 43 tracking/treeing dogs (bear) and they plan on using the same dogs for wolves. Do they have brain cells? Idiots! Makes me crazy to think about it. Thank goodness sight hounds won't work Too wooded. Stupid people. Argh!
