Estonian workers rescued what they thought was a dog from a freezing river. Once extracted from the stream, they bundled the creature and placed it in their vehicle according to the BBC.
It was when the men arrived at an animal clinic that they discovered the “dog” was a one-year-old wolf. The wolf recovered from its brush with death within the day and, after being fitted with a GPS collar by researchers from the national environmental agency, was released back into the wild.
The wolf was made a National animal by some Estonian nature groups a year ago.
