What type of wolf is this ? Image Credit: YouTube / Deep Bush Survival
Remarkable footage has resurfaced showing a dog being pursued by a gigantic black wolf-like creature.
The video, which managed to fly mostly under the radar when it was first uploaded back in 2015, has enjoyed something of a resurgence recently after appearing on YouTube channel 'Nv Tv'.
In the clip, a dog can be heard barking at something in the woods while its owner looks on.
For around 14 seconds nothing unusual happens, but then a large black shape that had seemed to be nothing but debris on the forest floor suddenly stands up - revealing itself to be a gigantic black wolf.
The enormous creature bounds through the trees after the dog, leading the man to shout 'hey!'
The video originally appeared on the 'Deep Bush Survival' YouTube channel.
Some Internet users have suggested that the creature could be a dire wolf - a type of extinct wolf featured in Game of Thrones - while others maintain that it is a large example of a timber wolf.
Whatever the case, there is no denying that it is absolutely enormous.
