St. Petersburg native Kirill Potapov has a love for animals that extends beyond that of the normal person, and it has led him to start a rehabilitation center for wolves in need of medical attention. He provides the majestic predators with everything they need to recover and re-enter their natural elements, including his unconditional love.

You can see from the images below that, despite all odds and their struggles with trust at the outside of the project, the wolves seem to respond with great affection and gratitude of their own.

Seriously though, do not try this at home. This guy has the wolf kavorka or something – in real life, give wild animals, especially injured ones, their space!
