There are many attacks on record throughout Europe and Russia. In the Rodina (This is Russian for "the Motherland." See my comment above.) wolf attacks are a staple of the culture, and gave birth to the musical narrative "Peter and the Wolf," and numerous paintings of troikas (the classic Russian three-horse sled) being run down by slavering canids. After World War II, when 25 million Russians and 1.5 million Germans died in the Soviet Union and there were bodies all over the place, the wolves undoubtedly chowed down, developing a taste for flank steak of Ukranian and haunch of Hun. When the corpses were gone they turned to live meat, so much so that the Soviet government commissioned a study on the subject by a biologist named Petr Aleksandrovich Manteifel, who did not believe that wolves dined on people. His study, which was published in 1947, concluded that our furry friends not only ate people, but guzzled as many as they could possibly run down, and was immediately suppressed by the government.
