Black Bear Eats British Columbia Woman



CTV British Columbia - B.C. conservation officers probe possible fatal bear attack - CTV News:

"A pool of blood, pair of glasses and a blood-stained jacket covered with animal fur were found near the woman's home."

The link includes some interesting video.

Update from CTV:


Four black bears have been caught and killed by wildlife officials, including one who they think dragged the victim away.

"The final bear that we snared (Saturday) evening was within metres of where the remains were found and it fit the description," conservation officer Rod Olsen said. "We're hopeful we have the right animal."

Further tests will determine if one of the bears was involved in the attack.

This later report also says the victim had already complained about bears trying to enter her home. Though officials are being careful not to spell things out until they have all the facts, it seems clear that this was a simple predatory attack.
