DAWSON CITY, YUKON—A snapshot of life for an ancient predator and its prey is being put on display as the mummified ice-age remains of a caribou calf and a wolf pup are unveiled in Yukon.

The territorial government says in a release that the specimens have been unearthed southeast of Dawson City.

Paleontologists say the calf and pup are remarkably well preserved, with intact hair, skin and muscle tissue.

The release says there’s considerable scientific interest in Thursday’s unveiling because specimens of this quality are extremely rare.
