Wolf Puppy Is Confounded By a Case of the Hiccups

Nikai, a big-eyed, big-pawed, insanely adorable wolf puppy at the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, New York, is utterly confounded by a case of the hiccups plaguing his little body.

Wolves can make a variety of vocalizations. They growl, whimper, whine, bark, huff, howl… Although the wolf’s howl is has been the inspiration for films, essays, poems, etc… we think there is another sound that evokes equal levels of emotion and excitement – a wolf pup’s hiccup!
