Meanwhile the cry alerted Yemelyan who had time to run from danger and tell his parents about the attack.

His father Ruslan summoned his friends, including local hunters, and rushed outside. 

The wolf dropped the terrier, which was clenched in its mouth, and fled into the forest.

‘The dog was still alive, we brought her to the vet clinic, it is about 200 kilometres (125 miles) away, but they said they could not do anything, and just injected a painkiller.

‘We drove on to Syktyvkar, and they promised to help, but the dog died in the arms of my wife.’

Hunters have now secured permission to kill the wolf, which is believed to have been stalking Yemelyan’s home in the subarctic village of Sindor, that has a population 2,000.

Ruslan said wolves had recently attacked dogs in the village but locals now fear children are in danger of the predators as well.
