A Sandpoint man riding a bicycle on a 2,750-mile tour to Prudhoe Bay as a fundraiser for a school charity was chased down the Alcan Highway by a gray wolf last weekend.
This is similar to a recent incident in Canada, except for one big difference: the man from Banff was riding a motorcycle.
Mac Hollan, who will be student teaching at a Sandpoint elementary school this fall, posted a chilling account of the incident on his Facebook page Monday.
It starts, “Two days ago I was attacked by a wolf while riding down the ALCAN. With all the planning for bears, road safety, and everything else, this scenario was something that none of us had ever considered. But, if you read on you will find out how I found myself alone on my bike being chased down and attacked by a Canadian Gray Wolf.
