Two Workers In Estonia Saved A Wolf From Frozen Lake, Thinking It Was A Dog

Two Workers In Estonia Saved A Wolf From Frozen Lake, Thinking It Was A Dog

Two Estonian construction workers, who rescued a frozen animal from the river, had the adventure of their lives. Robin Sillamäe, Rando Kartsepp, and Erki Väli were all doing dredging work when they noticed what looked like a dog trapped on the dam, swimming through the icy water of the Parnu river. After they cleared a path through the ice, they took the animal out of the water, wrapped it in a towel and put it in a car to make him warm.


The three men called the animal rescue and were told to take the animal to a veterinary clinic in a nearby city. Rando said that the animal was sleeping peacefully in the car, with its head resting on the man’s lap. It was calm, and when Rando wanted to stretch his legs, it raised its head for a moment. The specialists later realized that the wild animal had low blood pressure at the moment, which may explain the docile behavior displayed.


Upon the workers’ arrival, specialists at the clinic gave the animal a checkup and failed to notice who they were dealing with. It was a local hunter who eventually pointed out that the frozen animal was a wolf, not a friendly dog as was previously thought. He has also confirmed it to be male and around one-year-old.


The wolf has been already nursed back into health and released into the wild after the researchers from the National Environmental Agency put a GPS collar around his neck. The Estonian Union for the Protection of Animals (EUPA) paid for the wolf’s treatment and later told the media: “We are so happy for the outcome of the story, and wish to thank all the participants – especially these men who rescued the wolf and the doctors of the clinic who were not afraid to treat and nurture the wild animal.”
