In what is believed to be the first predatory wolf attack in British Columbia, an old, starving, female wolf tried to make a meal of a 31-year-old kayaker this week. But it picked the wrong man to mess with.

From The Vancouver Sun:

_The kayaker fought with the wolf for a few long minutes, suffering bites to his leg and hands as he attempted to pry its jaws apart and put it in a headlock.

He eventually dragged himself and the wolf several metres down the beach to his kayak, removed a 10-cm knife from his life jacket, and repeatedly stabbed the animal.

“He proceeds to start filling this thing with holes in the neck and chest area,” [conservation officer James] Zucchelli said. “The wolf gives up, gurgling and bleeding, and wanders off into the trees.”_
