Minnesota teen suffers head wounds in fight with attacking wolf

A 16-year-old boy who fought off a rare 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 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 it’s 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.
