A 62 year old woman is dead after a bear attack.

OPP say the woman was attacked by a bear Sunday evening when she went to check on her dogs outside of her cabin on Red Pine Island near the U.S. border

The woman's parents called police after their daughter did not return to the cabin.

She was later found with serious injuries and was pronounced dead.

One of the dogs was injured.

Officers came across three bears at the scene and one was shot and killed when it showed 'aggressive behaviour' towards the officers.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is investigating.
