Most people wouldn’t go anywhere near a wolf, but when the man in this video saw that one of these wild animals had been caught on a barbed-wire fence, he took action.

The wolf was literally hanging on the fence, suspended by a limb, for who knows how long before this incredible rescuer made a brave and daring move to free the poor animal. In the video, posted on YouTube, the wolf remains calm and patiently waits for the man to break through the metal wire as if he knows that the man is there to help him. As soon as the final wire is cut, the wolf takes off running into the woods, quickly speeding toward freedom.

While it is always best to call a wildlife professional before attempting to rescue a wild animal, we’re so glad to see this wolf back on all fours and returning to the wild where he belongs!
