A lone wolf attacked Aishat Maksudova outside her sister's home in Russia's province of Dagestan in the North Caucasus Mountains. The animal bit the farmer on her arm and her leg and she fell to the ground, crying out for help from other villagers. No one was in earshot. So she reached for an ax she had brought along to repair a fence, and with remarkable aplomb, she hit the wolf over the head several times until his teeth unclenched. The wolf later died. Maksudova has become a hero in the Caspian Sea province that lies east of Chechnya. She was still being treated for her wounds Tuesday at a local hospital after last week's incident.

Four People 77/?/15/30 ♂/♂/♀/♀ June 17, 2012 Predatory Kolmården Wildlife Park, near Norrköping, Sweden The killed victim was a zoo employee who had worked with the Kolmården wolf pack, consisting of eight wolves, for three years. The wolves had previously attacked three other people: in 2007, Swedish TV-profile Arne Weise was knocked over by one, in 2010 a visitor sustained a bite to the arm, and a 15-year old girl had been bitten on the thigh by one of the wolves a month before the fatal 2012 attack. The zoo operated a policy of "social activities", in which staff members interacted with the animals in order to establish rapport with them. The zoo employee was attacked at 11:00 AM after entering the wolf enclosure alone, and her colleagues only noticed her absence an hour later. Paramedics were unable to reach her on time, as the wolves had surrounded her body. After the attack, the zoo discontinued its "social activities". [11][12][13][14]
Seven people 62/8/? ♀/♂/? March, 2012 Predatory Tengzhou, Shandong, China In addition to the fatal attacks, the wolf involved had injured five other people, including a boy on his way to school. On March 19, the local police tracked the wolf to a wheat field and shot it in the leg, chasing it for 20 km before killing it. The wolf weighed 58.5 kg, and measured 80 cm in height and a metre in length. [15][16][17]
Candice Berner 32 March 10, 2010 Predatory Chignik Lake, Alaska, USA, 475 miles southwest of Anchorage Berner, a teacher and avid jogger, was discovered dead along a road by snowmobilers, who found wolf tracks in the adjacent snow. The Alaska State Medical Examiner ruled that her death was caused by "multiple injuries due to animal mauling." A series of necropsies performed on wolves culled in the surrounding area shortly after the attack ruled out rabies, sickness, or wolf-dog hybridisation as being causes of the attack. The case was notable as being the first fatal wolf attack in North America in which DNA evidence was gathered to confirm wolf involvement. [18]
Adult February 20, 2009 Predatory Giorgitsminda, Kakheti, Georgia, about 40 kilometres from Tbilisi The victim had been missing for several days before being discovered. Prior to the attack, numerous wolf attacks on both livestock and humans had been reported in the region in the last month.

The pathologist who performed the autopsy, testified Carnegie had lost about 25% to 30% of his body mass in the attack, with the top midsection to the thigh having been partially consumed. Although originally the possibility that the culprit was a black bear was not ruled out, a coroners' jury concluded after a two year inquiry that the attackers had indeed been wolves. [20]

John Stenglein 6 April 26, 2000 Predatory logging camp at Icy Bay, Alaska The nearly 7-year-old John Stenglein and 9-year-old Keith Gamble were playing at the edge of the woods, when a wolf appeared and attacked John. The wolf didn't growl; it just looked at him, John said later. Keith's mother, Teresa Thompson credits their family´s dog with saving the boys. John thinks the dog rushed in to save him too. But the wolf fought off the Labrador retriever and went back after the boys. While the dog and the wolf were fighting, John said, he ran in mud boots about as far as the hospital room door - maybe 20 feet - before the wolf caught him and started biting. John received 19 laceration and puncture wounds on the back, legs, and buttocks, before adult arrived, fought the wolf off and shot it. First he was treated at a Yakutat heath clinic and went home to Icy Bay the day after the attack. But two days later, John got really sick, his mother Diane Stenglein said, "He had a fever and said his feet felt like needles". In the Yakutat clinic John's stitches were removed and he was put on antibiotics. Doctors cut away the infected area in the small of his back so it would heal cleanly, the boy's back and legs were covered in bandages.

The wolf was found to have been neither sick nor starving, but in "excellent condition" with good teeth and healthy deposits of fat around its organs. Although a rumor has circulated around both camps that someone had fed the wolf before the attack, but a necropsy of the wolf's carcass found no sign of human food in its stomach || [25][26][27][28]

Torn to shreds by timber wolves, the remains of the body of Ben Cochrum, a trapper, were found north of Fisher river on Lake Winnipeg, a few days ago. According to information which has just reached here, all that remained to tell of this grim northland tragedy were the trapper's bones, pieces of clothing and a rifle with a broken stock, which were scattered over a considerable distance, but the bones of eleven huge timber wolves, which were found near the spot where Cochrane had been attacked, bore testimony of the unfortunate man's fierce struggle for life against overwhelming odds. Seven had been shot and four had been clubbed to death. Only when his rifle stock smashed did the trapper apparently cease to fight, and the pack bearing down upon him, tore his body to shreds.
