Colorado woman found dead near home from apparent bear attack, wildlife officials say – Fox News
A Colorado woman was found dead Friday from an apparent bear attack in the southwestern part of the state, according to Colorado Parks & Wildlife.
The 39-year-old’s boyfriend found her Friday evening near Trimble, north of Durango, after he arrived home and discovered their two dogs wandering around outside. He believed she had been walking the dogs before she was attacked. He last spoke to her Friday morning.
“Bear attacks are extremely rare,” Cory Chick, CPW Southwest Region manager, said in a release. “This is a tragic event and a sad reminder that bears are wild and potentially dangerous.”
CPW and La Plata County Sheriff’s deputies called in a dog team from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services, which quickly found a female black bear and two yearlings.
