Firefighters found a den of wolves on the fire and rescued 5 pups!
Firefighters rescued five wolf pups from an abandoned den Tuesday as they battled the massive Funny Rive Fire in southern Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula.
The pups had not been hurt by the blaze, according to a Facebook post by firefighters with the Kenai Wildlife National Refuge, who discovered the den.
Medics with the fire crew fed the fuzzy brown puppies glucose (sugar water) and plucked porcupine quills from their skin. In reward, they got some excited licks from the tiny pups. With help from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the litter was taken to Anchorage, where they await a permanent home.
