DENVER (AP) - An autopsy has confirmed that a bear killed a 74-year-old southwestern Colorado woman known for leaving food outside her home, despite wildlife officers' repeated warnings not
to.
The body of Donna Munson of Ouray (yoo-ray) County had been partially eaten by a bear or bears when it was found outside her home Friday. But state Division of Wildlife officials didn't
immediately know if Munson was killed by the bears or if she was
already dead when the animals fed on her.
Ouray County Sheriff Dominic Mattivi said Monday an autopsy showed Munson was killed in the bear attack. He added that she had no signs of heart damage, ruling out the possibility that she died
of a heart attack before being attacked.
Authorities investigating her death killed two bears, but it's
unclear if those bears were the ones that killed Munson.
