Firefighters battling The Funny River wildfires got a furry surprise.
Crews found five young wolf pups inside, left behind after the rest of their pack took off, and took the animals to safety.Authorities believe the massive wildfire caused the pups parents to flee, abandoning the little ones behind.
The wolf pups were treated by a field biologist and given sugar water to help relieve dehydration, according to KTUU. The animals are being cared for by a zoo in Anchorage until a permanent home is found. One of the wolf pups has a serious injury to its eye from a porcupine quill, which a medic removed.
Personnel from the refuge and the Department of Fish and Game helped remove the pups from the fire line.
