Your instincts just may be telling you something. This man's was, it turned out to be a wolf looking at him. A 104 pound wolf that is.
In Three River Falls, MN. Mr. Mike Olson was working under his father's deck doing repairs when he had the sensation of being watched so he looked around and sure enough he saw two eyes looking at him "I got out real fast." He probably set a speed record getting out from under that deck. His father who saw him come out from under the deck said “He came flying out of there like someone shot him from a gun.”
He thought he had seen a gray wolf under there with him approximately 6 feet from him, just laying there and watching him while he worked. He had been under there pounding away with a sledge hammer for about 20 minutes before he realized he wasn't alone.
The police arrived thinking they were responding to a large dog when they themselves looked they realized that is wasn't a wolf-like dog that it was indeed a wolf.
Animal control was called onto the scene and tried to get a noose on him and take him alive but were unable to do so. The wolf appeared to be sickly, infected with mange and very large. After their efforts to take him alive failed. A section of the decking was removed and the wolf was shot by an officer. He ended up weighing 104 pounds.
Mr. Olsen does plan to continue his work on the deck but says "I'm going to look twice."
