Good-hearted Estonian workers rushed to rescue a dog in distress from a frozen river, unaware that they were actually about to put a wild wolf in their car. The men were working on the Cindy Dam on the Parnu River when they spotted an animal trapped in the icy water. Yes, actually life is full of surprises and you’ll never know what will happen in the next minute.
They quickly pulled him out of the river and wrapped him in a thick blanket. Until then they had no opportunity to see him more clearly. He was a big dog with piercing yellow eyes, a sweet dog! Apparently, it was his thick fur that helped him last so long in the icy water. After providing medical care they revealed they had been carrying a wolf.
One of the men, Rando Kartsepp, said: “We had to carry him over the slope. He weighed a fair bit. He was calm, slept on my legs. When I wanted to stretch them, he raised his head for a moment”
The vets Veterinarians had some suspicions over the large dog’s true nature, so they decided to call a local hunter to identify. All of the workers and the vets were surprised by the hunter’s confirmation. It was a wolf!
The Estonian Union for the Protection of Animals (EUPA) said the wolf had low blood pressure when it arrived at the veterinarian’s office, which may have explained its docile nature after the men carried it to their car to warm it up.
