Posted: Updated:

The camping trip for a family from Lebanon Township turned terrifying when they were attacked by a wolf.

According to NBC news, Elisa and Matthew Rispoli were camping with their two young sons back on Aug. 8 at Rampart Creek Campground in Canada's Banff National Park.

Reports say the family was saved by a local man who heard the family's screams.

Elisa took to Facebook to describe the incident, calling it “something out of a horror movie.”
