A 37-year-old mother and her 10-month-old daughter were mauled to death by a grizzly bear at a remote cabin in Canada while the woman was on her maternity leave, officials said.
The bodies of Valerie Theoret and her daughter, Adele Roesholt, were discovered around 3 p.m. Monday after the child’s father, Gjermund Roesholt, returned to the Yukon cabin in northwest Canada. The bear also chased after him, CBC News reported. Roesholt shot and killed the animal before discovering Theoret and their daughter dead outside. Yukon Royal Canadian Mounted Police said officials are investigating the incident.
