After more than three months of rehabilitation a young male wolf came back to forests of north-eastern Poland. The wolf was found in a very bad condition, at November 26, 2014. Thanks to quick action of local foresters and the immediate veterinarian assisstance the wolf was captured and transported to the rehabilitation centre. After veterinary treatments and intensive, long-lasting care it finally recovered and achieved better body mass. The whole time in the rehab centre it was supervised by specialists from Association for Nature "Wolf" and finally equipped with the GPS GSM collar. Today the wolf, called "Napromek" after the name of the rehab centre, was relased into the forest near the place he was found. His locations and movement is monitored by AfN "Wolf".
