Bison Saved From Wolves By Perfectly Timed Taxi In Canada

Who says there's never a taxi around when you need one?

A herd of bison under attack by three wolves got help from a cab in an unlikely place: on the 200-mile stretch of icy road between Fort Providence and Yellowknife in Canada's Northwest Territories.

The video, posted on Facebook by Kerry Mercer, shows the wolves taking off as the cab approaches.

"Those buffalo got saved by us, eh?" someone in the car says. "That was amazing. I don't know when we'll ever see that again."

The CBC reports that hiring a cab for the long ride between Fort Providence and Yellowknife is not all that unusual, although it is pricey. One company contacted by the news network charges $650 for the trip.
