Baby carried off by Wolf:

An unusual incident for these civilized days, when dangerous wild animals are supposed to be exterminated in this locality, occurred Monday morning, and a devoted mother has scarcely yet recovered from her fright.


Mr. and Mrs. Herman Bilgrien who reside on the Paulson farm, Rozellville road, town of McMillan were busy about their usual work, while their youngest child, Roy, aged two years, was playing in the yard.  Mrs. Bilgrien, coming out of the house suddenly to look after her child, was horrified to see a large, dark animal, which she thinks was a wolf, carrying the baby off toward the woods. The mother, helpless with terror and fright, called hoarsely for help, and a little neighbor girl who had come over on an errand, bravely gave chase to the thief with his precious burden.


The wolf hurried under the wire fence, still holding the child with his sharp teeth fastened in the baby’s skirts.  He was making for the thick woods, but the shouts of the little girl chasing wildly after him frightened him, and when about two and one-half blocks away he dropped the child, and relieved of its weight sprang away into the woods.


The little girl gathered up the baby, who was uninjured save for his clothes, which were badly torn, and bore him back in triumph to the frantic mother. - Marshfield Times
