Grizzly Mauls Woman in Alberta Tree

CTV reports a grizzly killed a woman in a tree on Bench Trail in Canmore, Alberta.

Isabelle Dube had climbed the tree to escape the bear while her two friends ran to SilverTip Golf Course to get help.

Officials said the area had earlier been “voluntarily closed” to visitors because of bear issues.

Fish and wildlife officers later shot and killed the bear which had been relocated to Carrot Creek area ear Banff National Park following an earlier incident and had a GPS tracking collar. Bears are typically relocated within their home range because of fears they will die if moved to a different range.
