Years ago, a guy was searching for gold along the Coho Creek on Alaska’s Kupreanof Island. He was surprised to see a bizarre creature near a bog while walking through a woodland. As he got closer, he saw the animal was a large Alaskan timber wolf that had been captured in a trap and was injured and motionless.
The man was originally startled to see such a massive beast, but he quickly realized she was weak and fatigued after being stuck for days without food. While he remained apprehensive of her, he did see that her teats were overflowing with milk. This could only imply one thing: she had infants who needed her to live.
The man camped beside the still-bound mom wolf and her kids for the next few days. He spent his time searching and scavenging for wolf food. He even developed a relationship with the cubs! The mom began waving her tail slightly when he prepared her dinner one day out of nowhere! freestar
The man took a chance and approached the wolf to release it. She ultimately kissed his hands and let him free her from the venomous trap that had severely injured her paw. She began hobbling home once she was free. She came to a sudden halt, coaxing her savior to follow her!
The mama wolf took him to a mountain meadow and introduced him to her pack. It was a life-altering experience for the man as he interacted with so many wolves who treated him like a part of the pack. The mama howled mournfully as the man bid farewell, not knowing they were fated to meet again many years.
