A woman from a village in southern Russia fought off a wolf with her bare hands and killed it with an axe.
Aishat Maksudova, from Novo Biryuzyak village in the Dagestan region, was in a group of villagers herding cows and sheep.
The 56-year-old heard the cry of a calf being attacked and rushed to scare off the wolf but it turned on her.
"I was not even frightened. I stood like this, holding an axe like this. And the wolf, with an open mouth suddenly jumped on me. Jumped like that. The wolf clawed at my leg and I wanted to hit him with the axe," Ms Maksudova said.
