On Sunday night, Junior Cook and his friend, Leon Colombe, were relaxing in Cook’s yard in Cross Lake, Manitoba, in Canada, when they heard some unusual sounds.
Cook lives right on a lake, so he reached for his binoculars and peered out across the water. He could see some small shapes moving in the distance, and brushed them off as wolves fighting on a nearby island, according to Deborah Vandekerkhove, director of Norway House Animal Rescue, a rescue based in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
“They didn’t think anything of it, and then the next morning when they woke up they heard the sounds again,” Vandekerkhove told The Dodo. “They took their binoculars and they saw some dark figures on an island so they thought they would boat over to see what was going on. As they got closer to the island, they started videotaping because they realized the animals were puppies.”
