A 16-year-old boy who fought off a rare apparent wolf attack in northern Minnesota says he wont be sleeping outside anytime soon.
Noah Graham of Solway was camping on Lake Winnibigoshish with five friends last weekend. He told The Pioneer of Bemidji that he was talking with his girlfriend just before the animal chomped the back of his head early Saturday.
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officials think its the first documented serious-injury wolf attack on a human in Minnesota.
The paper points out that wolf attacks are rare. There have been two fatal wolf attacks in North America in the past decades, one in north Canada and the other in Alaska.

Rabid? Aren’t wolves pack animals?
Usually, yes. But our government has told us to look out for lone wolf terrorism.
“Rabid? Arent wolves pack animals?”
Okay, this kid needs to be locked up when the moon is full. I saw “American Werewolf in London.” Damn!
Probably not rabid. Solitary wolves aren’t that uncommon. This was probably an older wolf, kicked out of his/her pack, and close to starvation. It would explain an attack on a human — couldn’t hunt very well anymore, and desperate enough to go after an animal they usually avoid like the plague.
Better stay away from him
He’ll rip your lungs out, Jim
Wolfskin rugs, anyone?
I’d like to meet his tailor . . .
This is what happens when you go camping without silver bullets.
Our government has also told us that wolves won’t hurt you.
You have been on this board long enough to know not to trust the advice of this government.
More recent news in MN holds that the wolf had some deformities in its jaw and may have had trouble feeding.
Wait for it....some anti hunt type will blame this on a hunter’s errant shot that caused the jaw deformities.
With wolf attacks being documented with some frequency even up to killing and eating people, the pro-wolf people aren’t making too good a case. A bullet wound would be obvious, though. Still, you’re right; they probably will try that tactic and the presstitutes in the metro will cover it and move on.
Wolf: "So where can a guy find some action? I'm goin' crazy out there at the lake."
Kid: "What kinda action?"
Wolf: "Woman action, what do I look like?"
Kid: "Well, what do I look like? I don't arrange that kinda thing,"
Wolf: "But I'm goin' crazy out there at the lake."
Kid: "Well, this ain't that kinda place."
Wolf: "Oh I get it, so you think I'm some kinda crazy jerk for askin'! The last guy who thought I was a jerk is dead now. What do ya think about that?"
Kid: "Well, that don't sound like too good a deal for him, then."
Wolf Attacks Woman in Idaho.
She said as soon as the wolf saw her it charged. She was able to drop her bow, draw her 44 mag out of its holster, and put 1 round in the wolfs head at a range of a few feet.
Like black-on-white crime, these sorts of attacks are increasing.
Or maybe they're just receiving more press coverage.
Thanks for the ping!
Motorcyclist takes photos of wolf chasing him on highway .
Tim Bartlett of Banff : the wolf darted onto the roadway and began chasing him June 8 as he was riding through the Canadian Rockies. The animal got within several feet of him before Bartlett accelerated.
After Bartlett put some distance between himself and the wolf, he stopped to take some photos, capturing it in full pursuit. He says he could hear the wolf’s feet on the road.
I saw a clip on the news today, with a ranger stating that the wolf had an “unusual jaw”, making it likely that it couldn’t hunt properly. Wolf was probably starving and desperate.
I remember something about that and also the wolf chasing the guy on the motorcycle.
If wolf numbers are allowed to keep increasing we’ll see more and more people in the outdoors attacked or harassed by wolves.
The states need to keep those wolf hunts going.
Took a group of out-of-state elk archery hunters from the Great Lakes region last week. They ended up calling in a pack of 17 wolves by elk cow calling. None of the hunters had a sidearm or wolf tag and it was a very traumatic experience.
Welcome to Idaho, guys. That elk call should have been labeled "Elk And Wolf Call" - sorry about that. You don't have to pay extra for the wolf part.
I recall a conversation I had with an "experienced" hiker last year who asked "you hike with a gun?" in a voice dripping with disdain. Yeah, I do. Because there are things out there that can eat me. That you put there. Thanks.
These imported Canadian timber wolves are much bigger than the original US wolves.
