While walking in the Far North, a man came across an injured wolf. Realizing that the wolf needed her help, he saved her. Little did he know at the time that one day in the future, she would save him too.
The story began when a man was walking through a forest. Suddenly, he came across a huge wolf. Scared to death, he stopped. It took him a while, but he soon realized that the wolf’s paw was caught in a trap.
He approached the exhausted and injured wolf. He noticed that she was full of milk and must have puppies nearby. He wanted to free her from the trap, but despite her condition, she didn’t have it.
Not knowing what else to do, he set out to find his wolf den in hopes of being able to help his puppies. Once he found the den, he called for the hungry pups, who eventually left the safety of the den. He grabbed the puppies and put them in a bag and carried them to their mother.
The wolf immediately smelled its cubs and called them. The babies found their injured mother and soon nursed her. Knowing that their mother also needed food, the man fetched a dead deer he had seen on the trail and brought it to the wolf.
Knowing the wolf had enough food to last her for a few days, the man set up camp nearby while he considered his options for freeing her. In the morning, he discovers the puppies of his camp playing under the gaze of their mother.
This gave him an idea; perhaps he could earn the wolf’s trust through his puppies. He started approaching the wolf, talking to her, feeding her, until she finally allowed him to approach her. Finally, he was able to free his paw from the trap.
