Alberta, Canada – More information has been released about the fatal bear mauling that claimed the lives of two people and a dog in the Banff National Park. As reported by Reuters, the people killed in the attack had bear spray and permits to be hiking and camping in the area.
Park officials discovered two cans of bear spray at the camping site and they could see that the campers had properly hung their food so as not to attract wildlife.
The grizzly bear shot and killed after the attack did not have any tags or tracking devices and she was not known to to park officials. A necropsy shows that she was about 25 years of age and slightly underweight, with bad teeth.
Park officials shot the bear on Friday night after she charged them. The identity of the deceased individuals has not been released.
