On a frigid winter day, a forester came upon a female wolf who was nearing exhaustion. Finding food in the wilderness during the winter is a tremendous challenge, and the unhappy animal, who was already desperate, thought there was nothing to lose and approached the cabin.
The forester called Styopa was initially terrified, but he eventually took pity on the wolf and gave her some meat to eat. He understood better than anybody how difficult it is to get food in the forest during the winter.
The wolf returned a few more times, and the locals were concerned when they learnt that Stepan had opted to feed the animal. They were concerned that she might take their animals, but an expert forester cautioned that if the animal stayed hungry, it would become harmful not just for the livestock, but also for the residents of adjacent communities.
The wolf ceased appearing with the arrival of spring, but the forester was already accustomed to her. There was already plenty of food with the arrival of the warm season. People in the villages calmed down, but the forester was upset since he had already grown close to his companion.
However, by the end of April, the wolf ran to visit him once more, we note that this time she did not appear alone, but grabbed her cubs. The forester realized that not only she ate meat, but also fed her wolf cubs. Gratitude was visible in the eyes of the predators, and he did not see his forest wolf friend again.
