Grizzly Bear Shot Dead After Killing Woman in Montana
Officials hunted the animal for three days, setting traps in the hope of luring it in.
Staff wearing night-vision goggles shot the bear as it raided a chicken coop.
They had laid a baited trap near the coop, about 2 miles (3 km) from Ovando, the small town where the attack happened.
Ms Lokan and her friends were camping behind the town’s post office when she was attacked at around 4am.
She was said to be a long distance cycling enthusiast, with a “passion for life that was out of the ordinary”.
The bear first approached the campers at around 03:00 local time (09:00 GMT), but initially ran away.
Ms Lokan and her two companions, who were staying in a separate tent, then removed food from their tents and secured them before going back to sleep. But the bear returned shortly afterwards, leading to the fatal attack.
Bears that attack people are not always killed if their attack results from a surprise encounter, or if the bear was defending its young.
But local officials said that the bear involved in Ms Lokan’s death was considered a public safety threat because of the nature of the attack.
