The remains of what is believed to be a 2000-year-old wolf has been discovered in the Highlands.
A digger driver was extracting peat for crofter Duncan MacKay at Rogart in Sutherland when the remains were found five feet deep.
Mr MacKay, 66, was so intrigued by the find he contacted Brora Heritage Centre and archaeologist Dr Nick Lindsay, chairman of Clyne Heritage Society, was called in and later excavated a preserved skull, bones, teeth, claws and thick fur coat.
