Awoo! Kind hearted dam workers in fished out a "young pupper" from a freezing river and took it to the local vets, where it was discovered they had in fact rescued a /wolf/ 🐺

(the vets still treated the animal which wasn't aggressive, and after recovering was succesfully released back into the wild with a tracking collar)
