Minnesota Teen Survives Wolf Attack

Posted: Updated:

A Minnesota boy survived a vicious wolf attack while on a weekend camping trip.

Noah Graham was with a church group at the West Winnie US Forest Service Campgrounds around 4:00 AM Saturday.

The 16 year old says he was leaning back on his elbows, talking to his friends.

Then he felt the gray wolf's jaws clamp down on his head and it wouldn't let go.

Noah needed 17 staples to close the gash, and he has bite wounds on his ear.

Other campers say it was trying to get inside their tents, and moments later they heard the teen's screams.

The wolf was trapped, and killed.

It is now being tested for rabies.

The Minnesota DNR says this is the only documented wild wolf attack against a person in the state.
