Bear pulls California woman out of her tent, kills her in Montana
Wildlife officials using night-vision goggles killed the bear overnight Friday after staking out a chicken coop that the bear had raided near Ovando.
Sixty-five-year-old Leah Davis Lokan of Chico, California, was on a long-distance cycling trip and had camped by Ovando's post office with other bicyclists when she was attacked and killed Tuesday.
Friends said Lokan was a free spirit and adventuresome and aware of the dangers she faced on the trip.
