Parties of Russian and German scouts met recently and were hotly engaged in*a skirmish when a large pack of wolves dashed on the scene and attacked the wounded.

After the hunt ^the soldiers separated, each party returning unmolested to its own trenches.. Along some sections of this front hungry wolves have been particularly bold this winter, constituting a; real danger to outposts of both armies, and repeatedly the combatants have had to\ send out hunting parties against the' common enemy. .
