A woman has died after she was attacked by a grizzly bear while camping in Montana, officials said.
The woman, whose identity has not been released, was pulled from her tent and killed by the bear early Tuesday in the small community of Ovando, NBC Montana reported.
She had been on a bike trip with others, who were staying overnight in a separate tent, the outlet reported.
When another member of her group heard noises, he ran out and sprayed the bear, but was unable to save the woman, the outlet said.
The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks said a bear had been spotted by a business in Ovando on surveillance video Monday night, and a bear in the area had also gotten into a chicken coop.
“Grizzly bears are common in the Blackfoot Valley where Ovando is located,” the agency said.
The agency said biologists, conflict specialists and game wardens are searching for the bear responsible for the fatal attack.
