Authorities Identify Woman Killed by Black Bear

Authorities Identify Woman Killed by Black Bear

Catherine Sweatt-Mueller of Maple Pine, Minnesota, was mauled to death by a black bear while staying at her family's remote cabin in Ontario on Sunday.

Sweatt-Mueller, of Maple Plain, Minnesota, was on holiday earlier this month with her parents at Red Pine Island on Rainy Lake, near the USA border. The woman's parents, who were staying with her, contacted police after she did not return, police said."They heard dogs yelping or barking", Ontario Provincial Police Constable James Davis told Minneapolis ABC affiliate KSTP-TV.

Davis says her parents called police.

Canadian authorities said Wednesday a Minnesota woman was killed by a black bear on a remote island in western Ontario. Catherine did not return back to the cabin, so her parents chose to go outside and find their daughter. Officers found the bear standing over the missing woman's body and shot the animal.

They estimated the animal to weigh about 180 pounds.

Ontario's Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry will decide whether to capture or kill those two bears.

The Argentina star is contracted until 2021 but he can walk away at the end of every season due to a clause in his current deal.

Two bears whom authorities described as a sow and a yearling, were also found nearby and were "showing signs of hostility".

Police fatally shot that black bear, Davis said, before two other black bears - one stomping its feet, snorting and smacking its lips and another working its way around a perimeter - soon took off.

"The family is, of course, very devastated", Davis told the outlet. "If you approach a black bear closely, typically they'll see you and run off", added the bear research scientist.

The bear is being sent to the University of Guelph for tests and a post-mortem examination will be carried out to find any reason for the bear's abnormal behaviour.

"Attacks of this nature are extremely rare and our hearts go out to the family and friends of the victim", said Maimoona Dinani, a media relations officer for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.

However, he pointed that bears can be aggressive towards dogs.
