Noah Graham, 16, awoke Saturday morning to a wolf eating his head. the teen was lying outside his tent on Lake Winnibigoshish when the incident occurred around 4 a.m.
The young man was able to fight off the wolf before nearby friends and family arrived. Graham was taken to a hospital where he was treated for puncture wounds on his face and a 4-inch laceration on his head.
A wolf chomped the head of a 16-year-old boy who was camping on Lake Winnibigoshish in north-central Minnesota, the Department of Natural Resources announced Monday.
The boy, identified as Noah Graham, 16, was lying outside his tent near the shore at the West Winnie Campground around 4 a.m. Saturday and didn’t hear or see the animal until it bit him on the back of the head, according to Tom Provost, regional manager for the DNR’s enforcement division in Grand Rapid.
He struggled to escape from its jaws and got up and the wolf didn’t run off until he kicked it.
The DNR has no records of another serious injury or fatal wolf attack on a human in Minnesota before, Provost said. The only two recorded wolf attack fatalities in North America in the last decade were in northern Canada and Alaska.
