It's a story that has a better plot line than the Twilight Saga. A 56 year old grandma from Russia has told reporters how she killed a wolf with her bare hands and axe after it attacked a calf.

Aishat Maksudova was tending to her cattle and flock of sheep when the wolf attacked in the village of Novo Biryuzyak, Dagestan.

The grandmother managed to save the calf but the wolf then turned on her, clamping its jaws on to her hand.

Speaking from hospital with her hand bandaged, Mrs Maksudova said she was "not even frightened" during the wolf attack.

"With an open mouth, the wolf suddenly jumped on me," she said.

"The wolf clawed into my leg and when I raised my arm up the wolf was just holding my hand; trying to claw my hand."

Mrs Maksudova explained she wanted to throttle the wolf to death but was forced to reach for her axe when she could not prise the animal's jaws open.

"So I just left my hand, and the wolf was just clawing into it, pulling on it, pulling away like this," she said.

"And then I took the axe and hit him on the head."
