Aishat Maksudova, a 56 year old Russian granny kills wolf with her bare hands and an axe. This very tough lady actually wanted to ram her fist down it’s throat.
She did finish off the wolf with an axe, that she just happened to have, though.
The Russian grandmother is from the Novo Biryuzyak village located in the Dagestan region, and was part of a group of villagers herding cows and sheep.
The 56-year-old heard the cry of a calf being attacked and immediately rushed over to scare off the wolf but, frighteningly, the wolf then turned on her.
Apparently, the mighty tough Granny was not scared. At all.
According to Sky News, Aishat Maksudova recounted her ordeal and she said.
I was not even frightened. I stood like this, holding an axe like this. And the wolf, with an open mouth suddenly jumped on me. Jumped like that. The wolf clawed at my leg and I wanted to hit him with the axe.
In discussing what would have been a harrowing ordeal for many, Maksudova calmly continued and said,
When I raised my arm up like this, the wolf was just holding my hand. Trying to claw my hand. I wanted to open his mouth and put my fist all the way there, all the way to his throat. But I could not open him.
So I just left my hand, and the wolf was just clawing into it, pulling on it, pulling away like this. And then I took the axe and hit him on his head.
Maksudova was injured after killing the wolf. She needed hospital treatment after being bitten and is expected to survive.
Her fellow villagers have vowed to hunt down other wolves in the area.
