Claudia Huber: Woman attacked by bear was killed by bullet

When Claudia Huber of Whitehorse, Yukon, was being mauled by a grizzly bear last year, her husband fired his rifle to save her. Unfortunately, it was one of his bullets that killer her, a coroner has reported.

Matthias Liniger fired several rounds at the bear, as it dragged Claudia Huber several meters into the woods near their home in Johnson’s Crossing, about 130 kilometres southeast of territorial capital Whitehorse, on October 18, 2014.

Liniger eventually managed to kill the bear and drove his severely injured wife to a community health centre about 50 kilometres away, where she was pronounced dead.

However, it was only during the autopsy that the medical examiner discovered a rifle bullet lodged in her chest.

“The wound was somewhat atypical and suggested that the bullet passed through an intermediate target,” said the coroner’s report.
