FORD LAKE (KDLM) - A facebook video that has gone viral appears to show a pack of wolves encircling a snowmobiler preparing to attack on Ford Lake, near Longville, MN.

Rusty Lilyquist who posted the video on Feb. 12 says, "My friend was riding a snowmobile across a lake and a pack of wolves came in on him. He was taking a video until the pack separated and two wolves circled behind him."

According to the Timber Wolf Information Network wolf attacks are exceedingly rare. In 2010, a fatal wolf attack in Alaska marked only the second documented case ever of a wolf killing someone in the wild. There are some 77,000 wolves in North America. The first-ever confirmed case of fatal wolf attack in the wild in North America occurred in 2005, when Kenton Carnegie was attacked by a pack of wolves in Saskatchewan, Canada.
