When three construction workers noticed what looked like a dog struggling to swim through the icy waters of the Parnu river in Estonia, they kindly went to the animal's aid.
Rando Kartsepp, Robin Sillamäe, and Erki Väli worked together to clear a path in the ice, pull the animal out of the water and get him safely back to their car wrapped in a towel to get him warm.
“We had to carry him over the slope. He weighed a fair bit,” one of the workers said.
After calling animal rescue, the men drove the exhausted animal to a nearby veterinary clinic.
The Estonian Animal Protection Union took to Facebook and posted: “When we got to the shore, the poor wolf was very exhausted, hypothermic and frozen. Young men quickly ran into the car, brought a towel and dried the animal. Then he took him to a warm car and called the animal protection Union. It was also a challenge for the union to think about what to do in the morning at 8 with a dog in [distress], who could also have been a wolf.”
