Many years ago, in the wilds of Alaska, a man came across a timber wolf that has caught and battered by a trap. The man realizes that the wolf doesn’t have long to live and was quickly losing blood from being trapped.
The man was initially spooked after coming face to face with the large beast, until he learned she was weak and exhausted from being stranded for most likely days without sustaining herself. Nevertheless, even while still wary around her -he discovered that the wolf had milk coming out of her body. Which could only mean one thing – she had little ones who urgently needed her to survive but where we they? Where could they be? He needed to save her and the pups.
The man knew that he needed to help the mother wolf and that things could get very dangerous. He decided to backtrack her pawmarks and venture out into the woods so that he could locate her babies. Luckily, he found a den approximately a half a mile away.
As the man imitated wolf howls, 4 wee pups came out of hiding. They were so famished that they began suckling on the man’s fingers. The man cautiously carried them in his bag and reunited them with their mama, who embraced her little ones with deep emotional whimpers!
Despite the man’s kind gesture and good intentions, the protective mama still did not trust him to come near her. But the man knew she would starve to death at this rate. So he thoughtfully brought her the remains of a freshly dead deer to quell her hunger.
Over the next few days, the man camped near the still-bound mama wolf and her cubs. He spent his time prospecting and finding food for the wolf. He even bonded with the cubs! One day, out of the blue, the mama began wagging her tail slightly while he fixed her supper!
