Fred Brown of Melrose kills a wolf with his bare hands. While walking to Ward Springs he finds a wolf hunting frogs, its back to him. Brown, momentarily forgetting that he has a hunting knife in his pocket, grabs the wolf by its tail and wrestles with it until he breaks open its head. When five or six other wolves approach him, Brown draws his knife and prepares to fight, but the wolves retreat.
