There’s silence, the flock scatters, animals hide away. The forest has never been so still. It’s howls echo in the cave and as I creep closer to get a better view, there are growls. Mother wolf is trying to guard her injured pup as it let out a pitiful howl. I peered around the wolf’s broad shoulders to see a poor pup suffering from a splinter in its swollen paw. I had to help the pup but its mother was so protective and vicious, there seemed to be no way.
I didn’t know if I’d ever reach the needy pup.
