Wild Mississippi: Deep Freeze
Sunday, February 12, at 7 p.m. CST
NatGeo WILD travels to the starting point of the mighty Mississippi River —
Lake Itasca in Minnesota, where the 2,350-mile journey to the Gulf of
Mexico begins. Harsh cannot begin to describe the winter in this
region, where temperatures reach 33° below zero. Survival strategies
are as numerous as the creatures that live here, such as beavers,
bobcats and gray wolves. We’ll capture migrating bald eagles as they
prepare for the bitter cold and watch a pack of wolves hunt for deer and
porcupine, beavers feverishly work to make dens, and the vole, a
creature similar to a mouse, create tunnels beneath the snow to scavenge
for food. It is truly a test of survival of the fittest in this
freezing cold wilderness.
