Wild animals symbolize serenity, power, and freedom. When nature unleashes its fury, however, even the noblest of creatures will flee. Five animals (a grizzly bear, a mountain lion, a snowshoe hare, a stag, and a wolf) were caught in various locations (forest, frozen tundra, meadow, mountainous crag, steppes) by a different natural threat (an avalanche of snow, a flash flood, a tornado, a thunder storm, and a wildfire). Each escaped harm through its skill, courage, or dumb luck (one hid in a cave, one leapt a phenomenal distance, one outran the threat, one fell in the river and was swept to safety by the current, and one merely stood his ground and looked danger in the face).
Using the clues below, can you determine which creature was caught in each location by each hazard, and how each escaped harm?
