NAVOBOD, Tajikistan — At least six people have been attacked by wolves in southeastern Tajikistan in the last several weeks, RFE/RL’s Tajik Service reports.

A survivor of one of the wolf attacks, Ozodamoh Saidnurulloeva, told RFE/RL that “before the wolves only attacked livestock; now they have started attacking humans.”

Saidnurulloeva, 89, said she walked into her yard early one morning this week to prepare for the Muslim morning prayer when a wolf attacked her, knocked her down, and dragged her for several meters.

She said she thought the wolf was the “angel of death.”

A neighbor who happened to be outside saw the attack and started screaming for help. The wolf then left Saidnurulloeva and ran away.
