'I survived deadly bear attack by playing dead'


A Canadian woman has said she played dead in order to escape from a bear during an attack in Montana.

Deb Freele of London, Ontario, was camping at the Soda Creek camp ground when the animal entered her tent and began its assault.

The bear also injured one other camper and killed a man from Michigan.

Wildlife authorities have captured a 400lb (181kg) mother grizzly bear that they believe was responsible for the attacks and are awaiting the results of DNA tests to confirm its involvement.
