Workers Rescue A ‘Dog’ From A Frozen Lake And Turns Out Not To Be A Pup At All
Construction workers in Estonia found a ‘dog’ in a frozen lake and made their greatest effort to rescue it.
Robin Sillamäe, Rando Kartsepp and Erki Väli were working at the Sindi dam on the Pärnu river when they spotted the ‘dog’ was trapped in the icy water.
They decided to act quickly to save the animal’s life…
First, they cleared a path through the ice so the animal could swim to the shore. Once construction workers reached the animal, they began to dry and heat it with towels.
They took the supposed dog to a warm car and, after asking for help, took it to a veterinary clinic.
It was there that they discovered that the animal they had rescued was not a dog at all, it was a wolf!
Apparently, the workers believed that the animal was a dog, not only because of its appearance, but also because it was very calm and docile.
When the workers arrived with the animal at the clinic, veterinarians had doubts that it was just a dog. But was a hunter who finally revealed its true identity and also his age, he was only 1 year.
The veterinarians checked the animal and determined that it should be treated for low blood pressure, hypothermia and shock. The Estonian Union for the Protection of Animals (EUPA) explained that probably due to all these symptoms its behavior was calm and not of a wild nature.
After treatment, veterinarians put the wolf in a cage while it recovered. They were not sure what the animal’s true behavior once it was healthy.
Fortunately, the wolf recovered within a day and then was released back into the wild…to the place it belongs.
