RCMP in Saskatchewan are reporting the first suspected death of a human in North America by wolves in more than a century.

The Mounties say wolves likely killed an Ontario man in northern Saskatchewan earlier this week. The body of the 22-year-old was found Tuesday at Points North Landing near Wollaston Lake, about 450 kilometres northeast of La Ronge.

While this may be the first confirmed death in a while, I know there was a serious _attack_ a few years back in Algonquin Park in Ontario. If I recall correctly, it involved a wildlife student who was attacked on a trail with no apparent cause (not threatening cubs, not carrying meat/fish/etc), though I'd have to doublecheck details. Wolf attacks are very rare, but they happen.
