Grizzly bear is fatally shot after killing California woman

HELENA Mont. (AP) — A grizzly bear that pulled a California woman from her tent and killed her this week has been fatally shot in Montana.

Wildlife officials using night-vision goggles killed the bear overnight Friday after staking out a chicken coop that the bear had raided near the town of Ovando.

Leah Davis Lokan of Chico, California, was on a long-distance cycling trip and had camped by the town’s post office with other bicyclists when she was attacked and killed Tuesday.

Friends said Lokan was a free spirit, adventurous and aware of the dangers she faced on the trip.
