Years ago, a guy was searching for gold near the Coho Creek on Alaska’s Kupreanof Island. He was surprised to see a bizarre creature near a bog while walking through a woodland. He discovered the animal was a huge Alaskan timber wolf, injured and motionless after being caught in a trap when he got closer.
The man was originally startled to see such a massive beast, but he quickly realized she was weak and fatigued from being stranded 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 babies who needed her to live.
The man was well aware that approaching the animal to assist it would be perilous, yet he still felt sorry for her and her cubs. So he went back to her previous pawprints and went farther into the wilderness to see if he could find her younglings. He did indeed discover a den around half a mile away.
Four small pups emerged from hiding as the man imitated wolf cries. They began sucking on the man’s fingers because they were so hungry. The man carried them carefully in his luggage and returned them to their mother, who held them with deep emotional whimpers!
Despite the man’s kind gesture and good intentions, the protective mama still did not trust him to come near her. But the man knew she would starve to death at this rate. So he thoughtfully brought her the remains of a freshly dead deer to quell her hunger.
The man camped alongside the still-bound mama wolf and her kids for the next few days. He spent his time prospecting and scavenging for wolf food. He even developed a bond with the cubs! The mama began wagging her tail slightly while he prepared her dinner one day out of nowhere!
The man took a chance and approached the wolf to free it. She ultimately licked his hands and let him free her from the venomous trap that had severely injured her paw. She began limping home once she was free. She came to a sudden halt, coaxing her savior to follow her!
He was taken to a mountain meadow by his mother wolf, who presented him to her pack. Interacting with so many wolves who treated him as a pack member was a life-changing experience for the man. The mama wept bitterly as the man said his goodbyes, unaware that they would meet again many years later.
The man returned to Coho Creek four years later for another experience. As he revisited the now-rusted steel trap near the bog, nostalgia hit him hard. However, he was suddenly pursued by a bear, and he had nowhere to flee in that life-threatening situation. As the bear approached him, he panicked and climbed up a tree.
In the heat of the moment, the man let out loud “wolf screams” in desperation. A shudder rushed down his spine when an unsettling, familiar shape loomed before his eyes, just when he thought he’d reached the end of his rope!
