Moose hunting season in Sweden opened on October 12, but instead of dressing a recently harvested moose, one hunter found himself trying to keep his dog alive after a vicious wolf attack. The following video was sent in to Svensk Jakt, a popular Swedish hunting magazine, and it appears to show two wolves attacking a dog in a forest in the municipality of Sunne.

“My first thought was she was in contact with a moose and received a kick,” hunter Tommy Berglund said after his dog, Klara, went missing. “But when I went back, I saw that she was bloody between the legs and that she had a bite mark. Then I realized that it was the wolf. It was an uncomfortable feeling and Klara could not get up.”

Berglund carried his dog out of the woods and hastily drove to the nearest veterinarian, where Klara was treated for multiple bite wounds. After reviewing the video from the camera the dog was equipped with, Berglund realized that his dog had been in a fight for her life.

The first encounter started off peacefully enough when Klara ran into a wolf about her size while searching for moose. The two canines were curious about one another and Klara came closer to sniff the mysterious creature. It was when the second wolf showed up that everything started going wrong.

Berglund said that Klara continues to recover from her wounds, but is unsure whether she’ll ever be back in hunting shape again.

The video from the encounter is embedded below. It contains graphic content that some viewers may find upsetting.

    Good thing they were not hungry or they would have eaten her. She put up one hellava fight. Too bad her owner left his K9 partner to die. Shame on him.

    • Bender

      He didn’t leave his partner to die? It specifically states he got to his dog and rushed it to a vet

  • Super Tanker

    Who in their right mind would share this with anybody?

  • Tim H

    Share this with your protect the wolf people.

    Super Tanker you’re an idiot. If you looked around to find out more you would’ve realized he didn’t leave the dog to die. The dog is meant to track the elk/moose he is hunting. The dog found one wolf and things were fine. He didn’t try to find it it was just there. Then another wolf comes along and then the attack begins. The dog had a tracking device on him. The owner lost the signal thinking an elk/moose had kicked the dog then he picked it back up, saw some blood, and saved the dog by going to a vet immediately. When he showed the wolves ran off. He even discusses he won’t hunt the same area and likely won’t have his dog hunt again.

    Read the article. He didn’t leave her to die he carried her out if the woods then drove her to a vet thinking she had been kicked by a moose (very common) I’m sure if he had been close with a rifle he would have shot the wolves. As to who would show this? Anyone who knows what the wilderness is really like and wants others to know. It Ain’t A DISNEY MOVIE

    A vet friend told me the hunting dog survived and is OK. One reason for posting this might have been for education. If you notice, the wolves were completely silent during the attack, which suggests predatory behavior. In other words, the attack was deadly serious and when wolves, or dogs for that matter, have serious intentions, they don’t bluster, they’re quiet so as to conserve energy for what’s important – survival.

    It’s an object lesson to the granola munching, latte-quaffing, left-wing tree-huggers whose only conception of nature was learned from a Disney movie. You might “love” wolves, but they don’t love you! Klara put up one helluva fight. Ordinarily in that kind of situation a domestic dog is “outnumbered” going one on one with a wolf. Two on one? Forget it. Thank God for the thick and slippery GoPro collar and Klara’s natural intelligence. Sticking close to those spruce trees with the dead limbs prevented the wolves from getting a clear shot at her for much of the attack. The collar(s) kept the wolves from crushing her vertebrae or tearing her throat out along with her thick coat. I’m glad the brave girl will recover and I hope there was a steak dinner or two in it for her after her owner viewed the footage.

  • This is the real world, where 99% of the living beings on this earth fight a bloody battle for mere existence every day. Humans live in a bubble, shocked when the savage garden ventures into to their myopic sphere…..

    That is a tuff dog glad she made it I hope the owner went wolf hunting after this thank god he had a tracker on his hunting buddy

  • ben

    wolf 1 was probably just trying to lure the dog towards the other wolf

  • John Hendricks

    I would never put my dogs in a dangerous situation in the first place. I’m against using dogs in the police force, military or in hunting situations were they could be seriously hurt.

      Go piss on a tree…
