A 16-year-old boy, Noah Graham, was viciously attacked this past weekend by a wolf in Minnesota, according to an Inquisitr report on Tuesday.
The report reveals that the attack – the first of its kind - occurred at West Winnie Campground on Lake Winnibigoshish. The campground, which is operated by the United States Forest Service, closed after the attack. The gray wolf that attacked the boy was captured by trappers and shot so that it could be tested for rabies.
According to Col. Ken Soring, the attack which occurred Saturday morning near the campsite was the first of its kind in Minnesota. According to Noah’s father, Scott Graham, the grey wolf approached the group near the beach and went after Noah. The wolf clamped its jaws tightly around Noah’s head. The boy, who was with a church group at the camp, had to pry the wolf’s jaws open to set himself free. Then the wolf stood there growling at him until he started yelling at and kicking at the animal.
Noah needed 17 staples to stop the bleeding from his wounds on his head and injuries behind his left ear. Additionally, he is being administered rabies shots.
