Tragedy struck for one wolf when he was hit by a car in the Israeli countryside. The injured wolf was frantically hobbling around with a broken leg. Thankfully, some good samaritans were determined to save his life. Once his rescuers got the lone wolf to a vet, things were starting to look better.
The wolf, whom they named Oliel, was understandably frightened after his accident.
His leg had been fractured, which made it impossible for him to walk.
The rescue team performed emergency surgery to repair the injury.
Even after the surgery, it was going to be a long road to recovery.
But Oliel is one brave wolf!
Finally, after 4 months, he was strong enough to be returned to the wild.
His cage was loaded onto the back of a truck for transportation.
He might have been a little nervous.
Hang in there, Oliel.
At long last, he arrived in his natural habitat for release.
It was almost time for him to go home.
Then they opened the cage…
He was a little wary at first.
But soon realized he was free!
And he was off!
Way to go, Oliel!
He’s now right where he belongs.
We’re so glad Oliel was able to return home, all thanks to the incredible work of his rescuers. He looks so happy now that he can finally run free again!
