A 26-year old man was attacked by a wolf at the Cigar Lake uranium mine in northern Saskatchewan, Canada. A co-worker rescued the man, who was then flown out to a hospital where he is now recovering from the attack.
In the wake of the attack, three wolves have been killed in the area, but it is believed the wolf involved in the attack has not yet been located. Additional security measures have been instituted for mine workers.
Officials believe that the wolf may have become habituated to humans, leading to the attack. This is the third attack on humans by wolves in the area in the last 12 years, according to Canadian press sources.
