Never thought I'd see something like this in the game!
I went out to hunt a deer I'd seen near the barn in PV. I spooked it twice, getting too close with bow & arrow. The second time, it ran towards an approaching wolf. I've seen a wolf take down a deer before, but not this close, so took a bunch of screenshots. (See the 'Wolf v Deer' gif.)
With the wolf pre-occupied, I thought I'd shoot the wolf, and then take the deer I'd planned to hunt. My arrow hit, but only wounded or scared it, and it ran off yelping. I quartered the deer and started back with all of it to the barn. And then the wolf showed up, stalking me the whole way...
I made it in safely, though not before a second wolf came in from another direction!
Later, while cooking the deer steaks, I was outside, crouching, when I saw a wolf *limping* past. This is what surprised me. o.0 The devs actually wrote this into the game scripts?!? Is that the same wolf? Did I injure it in the leg without killing it? Did it fall after I shot at it and injure its leg? O.o (See the 'Limping Wolf pt 1' gif.)
After finishing cooking, I went out to collect more wood before night fell, and the limping wolf was back! I chopped wood, crouching, within sight of the wolf, revolver at the ready, but it just limped on by. (See the 'Limping Wolf pt 2' gif.)
Now, I'm hoping I can avoid a fatal encounter with this wolf. We have the kernel of a story developing here. I want to know where it goes...
