Bear pulls woman out of her tent, kills her in Montana

HELENA Mont. (AP) — A grizzly bear pulled a woman from her tent in the middle of the night and killed her before fellow campers could use bear spray to force the bear out of the area.

Officials said the bear had wandered into an area behind a museum in the small town of Ovando and awakened the woman and two fellow campers in an adjacent tent.

They removed the food from their tents and stored it and went back to bed.

The bear returned about 30 minutes later and pulled 65-year-old Leah Davis Lokan from her tent, killing her. She was from Chico, California.
