Polish farmer mistakes wolf for dog, has the ‘stray puppy’ tending his sheep

Polish farmer has discovered that his ‘stray puppy’ he had taken in to look after his sheep was actually a wolf.

Zbigniew Pieczyk, age 50, from Podlasie, Poland only became aware of his slip-up after he heard the young wolf howling during the night.

“‘I thought it was a sheepdog pup or a German Shepherd,” Metro quotes Pieczyk as saying.

“Then when it started to howl every night I realized I’d made one hell of a mistake and I called the police.”

Sheep are the livestock most commonly killed by wolves in Europe, but luckily for the farmer in question his flock escaped unharmed.

The young wolf has now been returned to the wild.

In February 2013, the French government introduced a ‘National Wolf Plan’ to try and educate wolves not to attack sheep, but the idea was met with mixed reviews.

The strange news is likely going to fuel the famed Polish jokes, but Pieczyk appears unphased by his error.
