September 5, 2019

Canadian authorities released the name Wednesday of the Minnesota woman who was killed by a black bear on a remote island on Rainy Lake.

Catherine Sweatt-Mueller, 62, of Maple Plain, was at the cabin on Red Pine Island for a family reunion, authorities said. She went outside when she heard her two dogs barking about 6 p.m. Sunday. The dogs, one of them injured, eventually returned to the cabin, but the woman didn’t.
