What did you do today? Maybe you went to work. Maybe you picked up the dry cleaning. Maybe you stubbed your toe. Maybe you crossed the street when a nefarious character appeared around a darkened corner.

Chances are, you didn’t have as eventful a day as Aishat Maksudova.

The 56-year-old heard the cry of a calf being attacked and rushed to scare off the wolf but it turned on her.
 
“I was not even frightened. I stood like this, holding an axe like this. And the wolf, with an open mouth suddenly jumped on me. Jumped like that. The wolf clawed at my leg and I wanted to hit him with the axe,” Ms Maksudova said.
 
In a reversal of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale where a granddaughter saves her grandmother from being eaten by a wolf, this Russian grandmother took fate in her own hands.
 
“When I raised my arm up like this, the wolf was just holding my hand. Trying to claw my hand. I wanted to open his mouth and put my fist all the way there, all the way to his throat. But I could not open him.
 
“So I just left my hand, and the wolf was just clawing into it, pulling on it, pulling away like this. And then I took the axe and hit him on his head,” she said.

Wait, here’s the real story: She’s only 56?

Ahhh, Russia, the successor to Japan as the most WTF Nation on earth, a magical land where everyone has a dash cam in their car, the moose suck at Frogger, nobody can park, Kurt Cobain lives and high-ranking officials give cats as presents to Conan O’Brien look-alikes.
