A wolf was rescued at a government building in Qinghai province on Friday after it was found with a leg wound believed to have been caused by an illegal trap.

Yang Jian, deputy secretary-general of the government of the Huangnan Tibetan autonomous prefecture, shot some pictures of the injured wolf and put them on his micro blog over the weekend along with a story saying that the wolf was found in an office on the first floor of the building at about 11 am.

The photos and the story of the wolf attracted great attention online, and media also followed it over the weekend.

"I was told there was a wolf - first thought to be a dog - going into the governmental building and then saw the animal was tired, lying on the ground of the office. Its right front leg was injured with a wound more than 6 centimeters long," Yang said.

Later, the animal appeared to have physically recovered and began snarling at the crowd of onlookers that had gathered to watch the scene.

To avoid an attack from the wolf, the government officials reported to the prefecture's forest public security bureau, which dispatched forest police officers with tools to control the wolf.

"I thought the wolf would be gentle after being injured, but it was still aggressive and was finally brought into custody by some six people," Yang said.

The bone of the wolf's right front leg was broken, forest police officers said, but the prefecture had no proper facilities for treating the wolf, so it was sent to the provincial animal administration bureau in Xining, capital of the province.
