BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- The anti-abortion extremist awaiting sentencing for the 1996 Olympic bombing and three other attacks says in an account posted on the Internet that he survived on the run for five years by stealing grain from silos.
Eric Rudolph also says a group of hunters and their dog nearly discovered his cache of grain one time, but then the dog got hit by a car.
In the Internet account, the former Army explosives expert said he used wheeled garbage containers and bags to steal grain from silos near Murphy, N.C., where he was captured in 2003 after more than five years on the run.
"It was the best of foods. It was the worst of foods. Whole corn, wheat and soybeans this was the staple that sustained me for many years," he wrote.
He put the grain in garbage cans and once, he said, he feared the stash would be discovered by a hunting party with a dog named Lil. But when Lil was killed by a speeding car, the hunters drove off.
