AMinnesota wolf went on a record-breaking beaver massacre, according to researchers at the University of Minnesota.

The breeding male wolf known as 'P0C' broke a record by killing 15 beavers in May, the Voyageurs Wolf Project said on Facebook.

"The most beavers any wolf we have studied has killed in a single month! The next closest was Wolf V028 in 2018 who killed 10 beavers in October 2018," the group said on Facebook. "That said, he did kill a deer in early May and then scavenged beavers that died of unknown causes on 4 occasions and scavenged deer carcasses on 8 occasions (many of these were likely kills made during winter)."
