The unidentified boy, who is reportedly from Solway, Minn., stood up and kicked at the wolf, which then ran away, according to state wildlife officials.
The teenager, who was staying at a campground in the Chippewa National Forest, was driven to a hospital near Bemidji, where he was treated for a gash on the back of his head and canine punctures on either side of his face.It does remind me of a joke I still tell, but was especially effective when the kids where younger and their friends were over. The conversation almost always turned to "you wouldn't believe this dream I had last night."
To which, I chime in and say:
"I had a dream once where I ate a giant marshmallow!"
(pause for dramatic effect)
"And when I woke up, my pillow was gone!"
That one reels them in like fish. Feel free to steal it.
