Milton Rodrigues, a trucker who lives in Santa Helena de Goiás-GO, Brazil, witnessed an odd occurrence on the road when he was traveling there on one of his trips. The truck driver was startled when he saw a maned wolf cross the road in front of him. Rodrigues came to a halt because he wanted to snap a picture of the animal, but as the animal approached him, it ended up collapsing below his vehicle.
It is possible that the unusual canid was attempting to flee the heat (which was roughly 40 degrees Celsius or 104 degrees Fahrenheit), since it was weak and dehydrated as a result of the severe sun. At that point, Rodrigues made the decision to assist the animal and provided him with some water. As the maned wolf slurps up the water that was handed to him, it is evident that he is immensely appreciative. The wolf is able to rise up on his feet, thanks to the water, and is able to make his way back into the forest. Thankfully, the water appears to have the desired effect.
