Teacher mauled in freak attack in AlaskaMarch 15th, 2010 - 9:29 pm ICT by Pen Men At Work
Mar 15 (Pen Men at Work): A school teacher in Alaska was mauled to death by pack of wolves. Attacks by wild wolves, rather than wolves kept as pets, are extremely rare and this could be first death due to attack by wolves in US in last five decades.
Candice Berner, 32 was an avid jogger apart from being a school teacher. Her badly mauled body was found in pool of blood and multiple wolf tracks. Experts say that Berner may have been attacked because she was on her period. Wolves who are able to sense this with their strong sense of smell attack for this reason.
Locals have expressed their concern about wolf sighting in and around the area. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game plans a special meeting to hear their concerns.
