Feb. 20 (UPI) -- An Italian man captured video of a dog's lucky escape when a pack of wolves appeared and attempted to make it into a meal.
Paolo Forconi posted a video to Facebook showing the scene he witnessed in Aubruzzo, Italy, when a wolf pack showed up in the area and started chasing a small dog.
The video shows the wolves surround and chase the dog, managing to bite it two times, but the smaller canine makes a narrow escape by jumping through an opening in a nearby fence.
The opening proves to small for the wolves to follow.
Forconi said wolf sightings have become an increasingly common lately after previously being a rare occurrence.
