UPDATE: Minnesota Teen Describes Fighting Off Rare Wolf Attack
BEMIDJI (AP) – A 16-year-old who fought off an apparent wolf attack in northern Minnesota says he won’t be sleeping outside anytime soon.
Noah Graham, of Solway, was camping on Lake Winnibigoshish with five of his friends last weekend. He say he was talking with his girlfriend just before the animal chomped the back of his head early Saturday. He says he had to reach back and jerk his head out of its mouth. He says he kicked and screamed at it, but it left only reluctantly.
Graham says his girlfriend fled to her Jeep, while two others in their group slept through all the screaming, kicking and fighting.
The Department of Natural Resources think it’s the first documented serious wolf attack on a human in Minnesota.
