Prances with Wolves: brave horse frolics with wolf pack

A professional wildlife photographer has captured on camera the remarkable moment a brave horse frolicked with a pack of wild wolves.

The scene was filmed in the Abruzzo region of central Italy on February 4.

In the clip, the horse wanders nonchalantly among six of the predators and then even rolls in the snow as the wolves watch on.

"I have never seen something like this in my life," the filmer Fabrizio Giammateo comments in Italian in the video.

"We've just witnessed something that never really happens!" he adds.

Wolves have been known to attack and kill horses, so this behaviour is very unusual.
