Gökmen is no stranger to wolves. He had to take on TWO wolves by himself and it looks like he bravely did his job, risking his own life in the process.
Although the dog was covered with blood, most of it was not from his own injuries.
Above shows a nearby area where the shepherd dog owner hunts. If you look closely, you will see a wolf in the left background.
Here is Gökmen's owner with his hunting dogs. I would like to thank Serkan Karaahmetoğlu for his permission to use his photos and the story of how Gökmen was a hero to save a donkey.

Unfortunately, 3 months after the donkey recovered, it was again attacked by wolves and Gökmen was not there to save it. The wolves ended up killing the donkey and having it for dinner.
