Woman Recounts Deadly Bear Attack
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A Canadian woman injured by a bear that ripped into a campground on the northern edge of Yellowstone National Park says she survived by playing dead as the animal bit
A Michigan man in the same campground was killed. Montana wildlife officials identified the man killed in the early Wednesday mauling as 48-year-old Kevin Kammer, of Grand Rapids.
Deb Freele of London, Ontario, described her attack from the West Park Hospital in Cody. Doctors there are treating her for multiple bite wounds to her left arm.
The 58-year-old Freele says she thought the bear was going to kill her, but says it left her alone after she played dead.
Authorities say a third unidentified camper was treated for injuries at the Cody hospital and released.
