Construction Workers Rescue Dog From Frozen River And Realize it's Actually a Wolf

By Mark Pygas

Three construction workers were at the Sindu dam near the southwestern city of Parnu, Estonia, last week when they spotted an animal they believed to be a dog struggling in the frozen waters of the river. The group immediately jumped into action, clearing a 100-meter path through the ice before pulling it from the water. 

Bundling the animal, which was suffering from hypothermia, into the back of a car and wrapping it in blankets, the three workers rushed to the Terveks Clinic. While they and the veterinary staff both thought the animal looked like a wolf, it wasn't until a local hunter saw it at the clinic that they knew they hadn't saved someone's family dog.
