In the far north, a guy was out walking when he came upon a wounded wolf. He saved her because he realized the wolf needed his help. He was shocked to learn that one day later, she would also save him.
The tale began when a man was taking a stroll through a forest. Coincidentally, he came across a massive wolf. He stopped, terrified beyond belief.
He took a moment to see it, but he soon saw the wolf’s paw was caught in a trap. He got closer to the weak and hurt wolf. He could see that mother was overflowing with milk and that pups should be around.
Despite her condition, she was refusing to let him release her from the trap. He searched for her wolf den in the hope that he might save her little pups since he had no other options. As he discovered the lair, he shouted to the hungry tiny men, who eventually fled the cave’s safety.
He collected the puppies, gathered them into a pack, and brought them to their mother. The wolf immediately scented her young and cried out to them.
The babies returned to their injured mother, and soon they were feeding from her. The guy then went to retrieve a dead deer he had noticed on the trail and took it to the wolf after realizing that their mother also needed food.
The guy set up his tent nearby while he thought over his options for freeing the wolf after realizing that she had enough food to last her two or three days.
He discovered the pups playing in his camp early in the day as their mother watched.
This made him wonder whether perhaps he might win the wolf’s trust by befriending her pups. He continued getting closer to the wolf, talking to her, and tending to her, and eventually, she let him get close to her side.
He may now choose to release her paw from the trap at last. The wolf called to the guy and invited him to join her in the woods as a sign of gratitude rather than running away.
He noticed her group of eight different wolves there, who yelled at her to come back. He expended considerable effort keeping an eye on the group until it was time for him to go forward.
For a while, it appeared as though the wolf and her young males were bidding him farewell. Whatever the case, their story was not over. The man eventually returned to the woods after four years.
He returned to the area where the wolves had formerly lived after visiting the location of the old snare. He encountered a large bear there, which followed him up a tree. The man, who was terrified for his life and had no idea what else to do, shouted to the wolves.
He felt a great feeling of relief as the wolves sprung into action, scared the bear away, and ultimately saved his life. All of the wolves save one remained after the bear disappeared.
He realized it was the same wolf he had earlier saved. Now she had saved him. He never returned to the woods in the future but clung to his incredible memories of his encounters with the wolves.
