The husband is said to have been out checking a trapline when he was charged by a grizzly bear 300 yards from a cabin he shared with his wife, Theoret, and infant daughter.

He says he shot the bear dead, but when he returned to his cabin, he found Theoret and their child’s bodies outside.

According to the service, the RCMP received a call at around 3:45 p.m. Monday from a trapper who came upon the grisly scene.
