The chase travel to the forest less than a hundred meters. In the distance, where the tall pines, heard the incessant dog barking hysterical. Bark moose — the first thought that comes to mind.

AT this protracted and very snowy winter elk really no longer afraid of the city and come to feed on small shoots residential areas. I do a hundred meters into the forest.
Around high pine in povlazhnevshem loose deep snow without I ran, and rather quickly crawling, falling, a small wiry dog.
— Dina! Dina! — She called her elderly landlady.
Without result. The dog barked furiously, raising a cute little face and writing circles around the pines. Above silently circling ravens, the and then rushing to trunk through the bare branches. A to trunk clung a little reddish squirrel.
Sometimes the animal ran headlong at trunk down, but there straining dog, do not allowing the protein to go down to snow.
— Dina! To me! Go away! — desperately screaming hostess.
Take the dog for a no leash let a deep, loose, heavy snow. Rubber boots quickly filled with snow while trying to get to Dina.
And again and the crow again, tirelessly dive on squirrel. To dodge, she made a short rapid care, similar to the fish in fast motion water. Sometimes poor flew on the top of a nearby pine. But The higher she climbed, the branches and were rarely the crow was easier to catch.
And again on the squirrel He ran down the spiral trunk. Raven was silent and resistant. She decided to feed a squirrel exactly and not to retreat for a moment. It all depended on who used to get tired: Shifty squirrel or black hoodie.
It seemed as if the dog barking small animal will go down, then it will be saved. But because the snow was very loose and moist, mobility squirrels disappear immediately, and Crow overtake it on snow. A Maybe a little dog — this unexpected salvation? She was not make the mistake of not go down on snow and escape on branches.
— Oh! Not I look more! — moaned one of the older women sobachnits, watching the dramatic duel between clever squirrel and hungry sheep.
Squirrel not tired, but she needed help. Plunging of Foot-in snow I approached the little dog, took it on hands and panting, came out on beaten path. Way to Snow squirrel was opened. The hostess immediately took her to the Dean leash ..
And I gone deep into the forest. Let all the ends of the laws of nature. Or nimble squirrel saved or pushy crow get their treat.
