In this April 22, 2012, photo, a black bear grazes in a field in Calais, Vt. Minnesota bear experts say that black bear attacks are rare and fatal attacks even more so.

A woman staying at a family cabin on a Rainy Lake island was killed by a black bear in what experts said was an extremely rare attack.

The remote family cabin on Red Pine Island is in Canadian waters, about a quarter-mile north of the international border that divides Rainy Lake and about 10 miles northeast of International Falls, Minn.
