He never spotted the beast but his tiny pet Jessie was alert to the danger and tragically tried to chase off the much larger animal.

CCTV cameras from a nearby family home recorded the boy hiding in a snow pile as the wolf closed in.

Jessie’s is then seen dashing towards the wolf so quickly she appears as a grey blur on the footage.

Heartbreaking yelps are then heard as the wolf suddenly turns on the fearless pooch.

Her terrifying cries alerted the boy to the threat and he then dashed to tell his parents what was happening.

His father Ruslan rushed outside and the wolf dropped the dog from its jaws and fled into the trees.

Jessie was found alive but severely wounded and covered in blood, in the northern Komi Republic.

She died soon afterwards in the arms of Yemelyan’s mother Marina on the way to the clinic in regional capital Syktyvkar .

“I called my friends (who were hunters) and they quickly arrived, following the wolf’s trail,” said the devastated dad.

“The tragedy happened at about 7pm and 20 minutes later we rescued the dog.

“The wolf dropped the dog, feeling he was being trailed.

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

“We drove on to Syktyvkar….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 small village of Sindor.

Ruslan said that recently wolves had attacked dogs in the village but locals now fear children are in peril too from the predators.
