Catherine Sweatt-Mueller, 62, of Maple Plain, was staying with her parents in a remote cabin on Red Pine Island in Rainy Lake when she was killed, Ontario Provincial Police said.

The heavily wooded island is in Canadian waters, about a quarter-mile north of the global border that divides Rainy Lake and about 10 miles northeast of worldwide Falls, Minn.

"They heard dogs yelping or barking", Ontario Provincial Police Constable James Davis told Minneapolis ABC affiliate KSTP. The dogs, one of them injured, eventually returned to the cabin, but the woman didn't. Police discovered a large bear near the woman's body.

A Minnesota woman was killed by a black bear while on a Canadian island over the weekend.

Two other black bears spotted nearby were also acting aggressively, Jim Davis of Ontario police told the BBC.

Her parents - aged in their 80s - called police when she failed to return a short time later.

Bears prefer to avoid humans but they can attack for a number of reasons, like a when person encounters a mother with her cubs, if a bear is defending its food, or when one is surprised or startled.

"Attacks of this nature are extremely rare and our hearts go out to the family and friends of the victim", the ministry statement added.

While black bears are common in Ontario, attacks are rare. A necropsy will be conducted, according to Davis, who said he couldn't recall a fatal bear attack in Ontario in the last decade.
