    That's crazy. He got a cool shot. That is one time you wouldn't want to go down. Road rash would be the least of your worries.

    That's pretty impressive that he was able to get a shot while on his motorcycle being chased by this wolf. I'm surprised this wolf was giving a chase. Usually animals run when they see vehicles from what I've seen.

    One thing they didn't mention in the article is that the wolf may have been rabid. I wouldn't want to be on a bike in that area. A little roadside stop could turn out to be a bad idea. If I'm ever riding through areas like this I think I'll enjoy the view, but keep on riding.

    I was reading this, and it reminded me of another news article that I am going to share with you. This is a bicyclist riding on a special benefit ride from North Idaho to Alaska, and he was temporarily separated from the other members in the group, and was chased and attacked by a huge timber wolf .
    Just when he thought he wouldn't survive, another traveler stopped and rescued him from the wolf.
    Wolves have made a big comeback out in the western states, and are creating a large problem for ranchers, but now they are attacking humans as well........ Not good !

    I was thinking about both of these incidents, and here is what I came up with. At first, I thought the wolves must just have been starving to chase down a human for food when they were traveling down and open highway. And this may certainly have been the case, although this time of year, food should have been fairly plentiful.
    Then I remembered that dogs really seem to be fascinated by rolling wheels on bicycles, and even on cars. They will often chase a car, and try viciously to nite the wheel as it is spinning around.
    Sometimes, dogs have even had their neck broken when they actually do get ahold of a tire, and their teeth get stuck. So, I think that perhaps the wolves were doing the same kind of a thing, going after the tire, as opposed to chasing the rider down to have them for dinner.

    He must have been a good rider to capture the wolf at that speed or maybe he had a mounted camera. Good exercise for the wolf, lucky rider.
