MN:Bear Attacks Woman, Charges Officer who shoots and kills it

This is an earlier attack than the recent Wisconsin incident. This attack was reported on 5 June, 2013.


A woman was attacked by a 190 lb. black bear in northern Minnesota on Monday night after her dog chased after its yearling cubs.

According to the Minnesota DNR, the 72-year-old McGregor, Minn., woman was bitten and clawed, but sustained non-life-threatening injuries.


An Aitkin County deputy couldn't find the bears near the property, but a DNR officer later found them about 200 yards away from the home. When the sow ran toward the officer, he shot and killed it.
