SELMA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Conservation officers have shot and killed a black bear and plan tests to see if it's the animal that chased and mauled a 12-year-old girl as she jogged on her grandfather's wooded land in northern Michigan.
A bear clawed Abby Wetherell in the thigh Thursday. The site is in about 35 miles south-southeast of Traverse City in Wexford County's Haring Township.
Abby screamed, and her father and a neighbor scared the bear off. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says she left the hospital Sunday.
The department says a man called late Saturday to say he shot a bear that was threatening him.
It says two officers tracked and killed the wounded bear early Sunday in Selma Township, about 2 miles from where Abby was attacked.
