That's quite a story and tragic. I don't like to think about how terrified she must have been.

While jogging near his campground in Colorado, My Dad was flagged down by a game ranger. The ranger advised him to stop jogging as at least one jogger had been killed by a mountain lion in the area. It seems the beasts instinctively view running animals as prey and pursue/attack.
Wouldn't surprise me if wolves respond the same way.

Despite the fact that enviro- greenies would have us believe that wolves don't kill humans, there is plenty of documentation proving otherwise. Even John James Audubon recorded a wolf kill of humans.

Wolf predation of big game animals is becoming a big problem, as wolves enjoy transplanted/protected status in many areas.
It's well- documented that wolves kill many more animals than they eat, apparently for sport.

The only time I've feared wolves was when my dog ran up a mountainside towards one just outside Yellowstone. She would have been toast had she not minded me. You're more likely to get mauled by a grizzly bear after you got hit by lightning crawling out of the water where a shark bit off your foot. However, I'm going to apply for a wolf tag next year here in Montana and if I see one within 800 yards of me it's dead.

A real tragedy. To bad for her and her family.
I hate that at the end of the article the Troopers try to place the blame on her. Whether its animals or criminals police always try to make out the victim as the cause. Our so called society is sure going back wards.

There was another fatal attack on a jogger a few years ago in Canada; I think it was in the Yukon. Also, I saw on the TV show "When Animals Attack" a wolf attacked a kid on the shores of I think it was Lake Superior and the family had to beat the wolf off and retreat to the water until help arrived.

When you watch the liberal network news there is always some big city environmentalists telling us that wolves have been wrongfully persecuted because there is no record of wolf attacks on humans, they were loathed because of our ignorance and superstition. When you do a little Goggling, you get a different story. IMHO, there needs to be a better management program, here is another encounter that happened last month in Idaho.

I think we can see more of this.
 
Wolves & coyotes are efficient killer/preditors and are losing their fear of man and should be shot on sight. The KLXY news story provided by SamC is an example. 
 
Coyotes killed a woman jogger in a Nova Scotia park a year or so ago - I think they ate part of her.

I carry a wolf tag up here in Montana, but I think it should be shoot on site all wolves outside the park no tag required. The residents here didn't want or ask for them. If the libs want them, they can have them in their back yard, but don't put them in mine unless you want them dead and a prize rug made out of the hide.

I have had a group of yotes stalk and circle me before.  Stuff like this is why I never go in the wilderness without a gun.  Preferably a rifle, if not that at least a magnum pistol.

That happened just down the road from me.  The wolves in that area are thicker than fleas on a hound.  Last year I saw a beast of one standing in a clearing down there.  Sucker just looked at me, and then trotted off into the timber, and stood there watching me as I climbed up through the clearing.

The teachers death, though by far the worst, was just one of may wolf incidents that year here in Alaska.  Most of the reported problems actually happened right in Anchorage.  Wolves from the Fort Richardson pack decided to get bold; stalking walkers on local trails, attacking dogs, even attacking dogs on leashes out walking with their owners.  Eventually Fish and Game had to take action and killed off around half the pack.

You hear other stories from time to time of cross country skiers or trappers turning around to find a couple wolves on their tail.  Even if the bears are in hibernation it still pays to be packing a firearm or bear spray.

I feel sorry for you guys in the lower 48, at least Alaska's Fish and Game has the knowledge to eventually recognize when wolves are becoming a problem in an area and sends in the aerial shooters.  You guys loose half your elk and deer populations in an area are lucky to get one wolf tag.

That's right... just for hogs, if nothing else. Someone (I think on this forum,) used the phrase coyotes count coup and many coyote callers can testify to that. There's a video on YouTube with a coyote persistently after a fellow, making repeated runs at him and at times, gnawing on his boot while he filmed.
I let 2 coyotes slide past and live during deer season because I didn't want to betray my position.
 A friend of a horse- owner friend in OKC metro area claims to have had a cougar in her barn, alerting her when her horses went all freaky.

Hi Wild in AK:
Just to let these folks in the "Lower 48" know what we real Alaskans know.
We are NOT at the top of the food chain.
If the weather doesn't kill you,which it often can, then the critters will try.
Come to Alaska and enter the food chain.
Two legged and four legged, plenty of really tough predators around.
But I would not have missed growing up here for anything.
OK, maybe seeing a bikini clad beach in California every summer but then the moose and bear hunting would have been lousy.
