STATEMENT OF MARK E. APPLEBY ON WOLF ATTACK
STATEMENT OF RAYMOND R. PITMAN ON WOLF ATTACK
OCT 30, 2010
"Myself and Mario Benedict went hunting on Friday the 29th of Oct up Deep Creek Rd on east side of Hungry Horse Reservoir.
"I shot a 6 point bull elk approximately two hours from the truck. I gutted and quartered the elk as Mario drags them up to the road. We then walked back to the truck. As Mario had to work the following day, I got Raymond Pittman to help me get the meat the following morning with my horses." .....
"Mark turned and started to yell "Wolves, Raymond".
"I turned to see 6 or 7 wolves at 20 yards or less coming in on us, "silently!! No noise was heard." I pulled my .44 and fired a round up the hill as a warning. They didn't pause at all. .....
"Then my .44 was out of bullets ...
"God saved us this time, but those wolves are still out there.
"I won't go in these woods without a side-arm ever again. These wolves were not afraid of us at all. They are killers.
"If those horses didn't tell us, they would have been on us in 3 seconds.
"The closest I have ever been to being food for a predator."
