Trapped in the Ice

The Norwegian winter has so far been one of the mildest since the 1800s. Then bitter cold winds swept through the country and surprised nature’s creatures. It had tragic consequences.

The images below illustrate that nature can be both beautiful and cruel.

  1. It’s kind of gruesome but fascinating.

  2. The poor moose! Nature can be cruel and life unpredictable for animals.

  3. By the way, is that your dog? It looks like a Schnauzer? Very cute!
