The wolves as well as the moose are entirely airborne , all the animals are sespended by ONE leg of the running 2000 lbs moose. 5 wolves are suspended defying gravity off small attachments to the moose in various running poses One of the 8 wolves is running along the side of the moose biiting at him, another has been thrown off the the front of the display and is recovering to get back into :The Chase".
