The man who is now the hero of our story had an unusual hobby. In his spare time, he searched for gold on Kupreanof Island, Alaska. During this unusual adventure, he had an unusual and by no means pleasant encounter with a wolf. However, this large and wild animal posed no danger to the man, she needed its help! A wolf from Alaska had fallen into a trap that wounded him and left him lying motionless as he cried out for help.
The man was frightened, but above all he remained calm, and when he realised that the animal needed his help, he reacted without hesitation and accepted the poor animal’s call for help. He quickly realised that the animal was harmless, wounded and very tired, in pain and probably at the end of exhalation. She had been without food and care for days. The wounds were already very dangerous, and what worried the man most was that he noticed that the she-wolf had her teats full of milk, which meant that she had babies who were also at risk without her presence.
The matter now took on even more serious proportions.
The man had many years of experience in nature and with animals, he knew that one of the main features of the wolves’ nature was that they were most dangerous when wounded. That was in the back of his mind, but still he did not give up trying to help the animal. He came up with the idea of following the tracks of her paws to reach the place where her little babies were. The wolf den was only half a mile away from where the she-wolf had been caught.
Four tiny pups came out of the den as the well-prepared man lured them in by imitating the sound of a wolf call. He immediately noticed that the pups were very hungry and dehydrated. He packed them all in his bag and took them to the mother, who was whimpering desperately in pain, but was again glad to see her puppies again.
Despite all the man’s good intentions to convince the she-wolf to allow him to approach her and free her, she would not allow it. She simply could not trust him. To win her over, he stayed by her side for days, along with her pups, hunting game for her and her babies. He did everything he could to gain her trust, knowing that at this rate neither she nor her pups would survive.
Fortunately, the pups slowly began to trust the man and he built a special bond with them. When the mother wolf noticed this, she began to wag her tail and give her consent. The man continued to prepare meals for the wolves.
At some point, after some time, he tried again to approach the wounded she-wolf, hoping that this time the attempt would be successful. And then came the shock! Long-term effort and perseverance finally paid off! The she-wolf licked the good man’s hand, giving him a sign that he could release her. When she was released, she immediately made her way to her den. At one point she stopped and invited him to go with them, with signs that only this man understood.
Mama Wolf, believe it or not, took him into her pack! She wanted to introduce him to the others. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it?! You never see anything like it in life, and this man was really lucky! The pack accepted him as a member and he never felt threatened by them. But at some point, the good man had to move on. He had to leave them. As he said goodbye, the mother wolf howled wistfully and said goodbye to her saviour.
No one suspected that they would meet again after four years!¨
When the man returned to Coho Creek to relive his memories and visit the now rusted steel trap from which he had rescued a wounded wolf near the swamp, he had no idea that this time he would find himself in a dangerous situation. At one point, he noticed a large bear coming towards him, and that’s when the man felt great fear and danger to his own life! The man was forced to quickly climb the tree in panic.
Intuitively, he began to emit “cries of wolf” and then, when he thought it was over, something incredible happened!
See what the man saw and how it changed his life by watching this video to the end!
