Bedouin Shepherdess Slays Attacking Wolf

February 14, 1986|Associated Press

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — A Bedouin shepherdess stabbed to death a wolf that attacked her, the newspaper Okaz reported Thursday.

Okaz said the wolf surprised Umm Rajnan as she was tending her flock near a desert village about 125 miles from the city of Medina.

As the wolf began attacking her sheep, Umm Rajnan slipped into her tent and grabbed a large knife, the newspaper said. When the wolf jumped at her, she stabbed it repeatedly until it fell dead at her feet, Okaz said.
