It was six months back that I found Zysta rolled in barbed wire, wounded and moaning by the roadside down the hill.
There were severe cuts, and it was evident that she had fallen after a gruesome fight with some dangerous species. She had wounds on her head and upper neck. I was on my way back to home and being the veterinarian I had serious concerns that this wolf-dog will not survive if not treated urgently and so I decided to take her to the sanctuary.
In the treatment process, we removed the barbed wire at the very first place. The piercings were bleeding, but the medical aid served as the savior, and she kept on breathing. Soon she was active and juvenile as ever. We kept her in one of the enclosures but to our surprise, the 12 feet fence was in her reach.
The first two weeks were very exercising as she used to jump to the top fence but never succeeded. We were getting a feeling that she is agitated and is not comfortable. We were taking every bit of caution so that she may not damage herself again.
Zysta’s behavior after treatment gave my team a bit of uneasiness as they were firm that she is missing her land and will run out one day. She tried to flip over the fence a couple of times. But I kept my duty on and daily caress, routine exposure and love made Zysta one of the heroines of our sanctuary.
She is one good example of what love can achieve. She is smart, beautiful, joyful and incredibly gorgeous. It is a privilege to have her among us, smiling, playing and enjoying. The furs on belly were removed heavily to remove the barbed wire, but she is completely healthy.
This story is one of the most exciting stories that have come from an animal sanctuary.
A very happy wolf
