HELENA Mont. (AP) — Wildlife officials say they've shot, killed Montana grizzly bear that pulled California woman from tent, killing her.
Leah Davis Lokan of Chico, California, was an experienced outdoors woman and cyclist who was on a mountain biking trip.
She and her party were camped by Ovando's post office early Tuesday when she was attacked.
Friends said Lokan was a free spirit, competitive and adventuresome and was aware of the dangers she faced on the trip.
