In a split-second, a photographer captures a striking image of a rare Iberian wolf on the hunt, leaping over a farm gate. The image is selected from over 43,000 entries, netting photographer Jose Luis Rodriguez the award for Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
Unfortunately for Rodriguez, allegations have been raised challenging the photo's "veracity". It seems that his animal subject, may have been an "animal model" raised in captivity, and not a wild wolf. The Natural History Museum, which co-owns the competition with BBC Wildlife Magazine, is investigating the claims.
