A Wolf Who Was Hit By A Car Is Given A Second Chance At Life

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.
