Wildlife Officials Kill Grizzly Bear That Killed Chico Woman

HELENA, Mont. (AP) – DNA testing confirms that federal wildlife officers shot and killed the grizzly bear that pulled a Chico woman from her tent in western Montana and killed her. Montana wildlife officials say the DNA sample from the bear matched a saliva sample from the scene of the July 6 attack and samples from two chicken coops that were raided in the Ovando area. The bear killed 65-year-old Leah Davis Lokan of Chico, while she was camped along a long-distance bike route that traces the Continental Divide. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesperson Greg Lemon has said the bear was a healthy weight and showed no sign of illness.
