    One of the rescuers, a man named Rando Kartsepp, told the Estonian newspaper Postimees, "He weighed a fair bit", in referring to carrying the animal into the car to drive to the clinic. He said, the wolf was calm and slept on his leg, and "when I wanted to stretch them, he raised his head for a moment."

    The Estonian Union for the Protection of Animals (EUPA), which posted photos of the canine with the story on Facebook, said that the animal was "very exhausted, hypothermic and frozen" when it was brought to the clinic.
