Born to be wild: Wolf chases Canadian motorcyclist in Rockies

Tim Bartlett snapped photos of his close encounter with a large gray wolf in British Columbia. He still has not come down from the ‘nature high’ of this invigorating ride.

 No one will think he is crying wolf with this evidence.

A motorcyclist was cruising through the Canadian Rockies when a gigantic gray wolf emerged from the brush and chased him down.

“Just seeing a wolf is one thing; to have it run beside you and chase you is another thing altogether,” said Tim Bartlett, a mechanic from Banff, Alberta.

Bartlett sped down a stretch of British Columbia’s Highway 93. He managed to put distance between the canine and himself.

Then he stopped the bike, pulled off his gloves, took his camera out and drove back toward the carnivore for a closer brush with the Canadian wildlife.

Rouslan Toumaniantz, Tattoo Artist, Inked Name Across Girlfriend Lesya’s Face, Hours afterThey Met

Is this the face of true love?

A Russian college graduate is drawing stares after allowing her new boyfriend to tattoo his name on her face — the day they met in person.

According to British tabloid The Sun, Lesya Toumaniantz allowed her beau, Rouslan Toumaniantz, to ink “Ruslan” across both her cheeks in Gothic letters, 5 inches tall.

The pair reportedly met in an online chatroom and now are engaged. Lesya has already changed her last name to Toumaniantz on Facebook.

“It’s a symbol of our eternal devotion. I’d like him to tattoo every inch of my body,” she said, according to Gawker.

Rouslan Toumaniantz gained Internet infamy in 2009, when a young woman accused him of tattooing 56 stars on her face while she was sleeping. Kimberley Vlaminck, 18 at the time, later recanted her story, admitting she had lied after her father was furious over the face design.

The Guardian notes that, while once seriously taboo, face tattoos are growing in popularity — even a former Czech presidential candidate has gone under the needle.

Predictably, some come to regret their face art, as was the case with professional wrestler Eric Hartsburg, who got Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign logo tattooed on his face for $15,000. Hartsburg has since decided to have the logo removed.
