Idaho Cyclist Reflects On Scary Wolf Chase

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - An Idaho man cycling to Alaska suffered a scare after being chased by a gray wolf.
    
Thirty-five-year-old William "Mac" Hollan of Sandpoint says he also needed the help of friends to thwart a wolf that chased him last week - half-way through his 2,750-mile trip to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.
    
Hollan told the Spokesman-Review (http://bit.ly/13R78CU ) the wolf charged out of the forest about 60 miles west of Watson Lake in the Yukon Territory.
    
Hollan - along with his cycling partners and other witnesses - says the wolf made an initial chomp at his pedal. As he peddled faster, the wolf kept pace and nipped several times at his bike packs.
    
He was finally rescued by a passing motorist and watched inside the vehicle as the wolf ripped his tent bag.
