...and how far away will you be from them?

Regardless, the 70-300L is an excellent telezoom if 300mm is long enough.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

The Tamron 150-600 is probably your best bet for wildlife photography on a budget.  Its the cheapest and longest and by all accounts the IQ is great for the money.  Seems like a no-brainer first wildlife lens to me.

Unless by "shooting some animals" you mean at the zoo or your cat or something.  In that case, I'd go with one of the 70-200 2.8's.
