When a wolf attacked Russian farm woman Aishat Maksudova, it bit off a bit more than it could chew. While working alone on her sister’s farm in the North Caucasus Mountains, Aishat was approached by a wolf. The lone animal rushed Aishat and bit her on her arm and her leg. She called for help, but, no one was near enough to her isolated farm to hear her cries.
Aishat picked up the axe that she had been using to fix a damaged fence and began striking the animal on the head. The wolf finally let go, and Aishat was able to escape and get help. The wolf died from its injuries. Aishat is healing from the attack, and is being hailed as a local hero.
