Trappers Work Quickly and Efficiently to Free Large Wolf from Trap

Trapping a wolf would be a rush, but what about letting it go from the trap? "Frightening" might be the word.

Trapping is a popular activity for many. It takes a lot of skill, experience, and knowledge to be a consistently successful trapper.

I personally can't imagine walking up on a trap with a wild wolf on it. Being from Illinois, crossing the path of a wolf is not something I have ever experienced. But the thought of releasing a full adult wolf from a trap seems to be something that would make the hair on the back of your neck stand up on end. Especially when it is still lively and wants to rip your face off simply because it doesn't understand you're trying to help it.

Watch these two take the job on like a champ and successfully release this wolf into the wild.

Let your imagination run wild about what could be coming up in this video:

Based off what we saw here, it looks as if these guys have done this a time or two. We imagine the first time they encountered this scenario was a heart-pumping one for sure.

I would assume this went as smoothly as it possibly could have. You may have been expecting something a little more intense and dangerous, but I can assure you these guys enjoy this release more than what you were hoping for.

Feet from a large wolf, just seconds after his foot had been clamped and he is irritated? I'm sure it can lead to fireworks at times.
