'Dog' rescued from frozen river turns out to be wild wolf


'He was calm, slept on my legs,' says construction worker Rando Kartsepp

Three construction workers rescued what they thought was a dog trapped on a frozen river in Estonia - only to discover it was actually a young wolf.

The group spotted the animal struggling to escape the icy water near the southwestern city of Parnu when they arrived to carry out dredging work at the Sindu dam.

They cleared a 100-metre path through the ice before pulling it from the water, wrapping it in a towel and driving it to a nearby veterinary clinic.

“He was calm, slept on my legs,” one of the men, Rando Kartsepp, told the Estonian newspaper Postimees. “When I wanted to stretch them, he raised his head for a moment.”

1. I've loved grey wolves since childhood-- Likely why I am so drawn to blue merle Aussie/Border collie

The beautiful traits sans the wildness. (or mostly) SO proud of these guys for saving this wolf.

3. I saw that the other day and thought

This should be posted.

So glad this magnificent critter was saved. I bet they would've done the same knowing he was a wolf.
