Baddest Grandma Alive: 56-Year-Old Russian Woman Kills Wolf With Axe (Graphic Image) - 14

Aishat Maksudova, a 56-year-old Russian farmer from the North Caucasus Mountains, got the better of a wolf that tried to take out one of her cattle.

Maksudova ran over to stop the wolf, which was about to kill one of her calves and then the canine turned its attention on her (Russia is home to Eurasian wolves, close relatives to our gray wolf).

"The wolf suddenly jumped on me with an open mouth. He clawed onto my leg and I wanted to hit him with the ax," she said in an interview with ITN. "When I raised my arm up … the wolf was just holding my hand. I wanted to open his mouth and put my fist all the way to his throat, but I could not open him … And then I took the ax and hit him on the head."

Maksudova was treated for wounds on her hand at a local hospital and doctors said she was recuperating well. As you can see from the photo, the wolf died.

News of the wolf bashing has traveled quickly and Maksudova has already become a hero of sorts in the Caspian Sea province.

Is Maksudova the baddest grandma on the planet? Comment below!

Thank Goodness they have strict gun control in Russia, or she might have shot the wolf.

The wolf is a villain and the woman is a hero.

In the world of wild animals it's truly the survival of the fittest. The woman did what is had to do to survive. The wolf was also doing what it had to do to survive. No heroes, no villains, just life.

Maybe we can order some mail-order predator control-from Russia!

But, but, but I thought those fuzzy wolves were so cute and cuddly???

I think we aught to bring that lady up on charges. It sounded to me like she had malice in her heart when she got involved in the first place.

Don’t wolves have a right to eat just like everybody else?

She should have called 911 and waited for the police to protect her calf instead of taking the law into her own hands like that!

I can only hope the wolf’s family is getting counseling and has a good lawyer...

It’s no wonder the world is in the shape its in.

@DDaddy Rock,
-There is a warning of a graphic image.
-The second portion of your post is incorrect.
-The third section is pretty much worthless. How does 65 million years ago relate to this point in time? During the great dying more than 90% of life on earth died and the earth recovered.
-The farmer is not a hero just because she killed the wolf(with your logic, the wolf would of been a hero if it managed to kill the farmer). Both the farmer and the wolf were victims.

My heart shattered when I saw this image.

Wolves do not attack people unless sick, inured, provoked,or trapped. His head laid open as a result of our expansion into their ever shrinking reality.
