Bear shot by game warden near McGregor after attack on woman
A 72-year-old McGregor woman was bitten and clawed by a sow bear before the animal and her three yearlings left the woman’s property Monday night.
The woman received “non-life-threatening” injuries and the bear later was killed when it charged at a state conservation officer, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resource said today.
The DNR said the sow weighed about 190 pounds, slightly larger than average, and had been seen around the woman’s property in recent days.
