A man is devastated over the loss of his wife, who was killed while he tried to protect her from a bear.

Matthias Liniger and his wife, Claudia Huber, both of Canada, were at their home in Yukon, when a bear came onto their property and attacked the woman.

The husband accidentally shot and killed his 42-year-old wife while trying to save her from the bear that attacked her, according to a forensic report released this month.

Yukon’s chief coroner Kirsten Macdonald believes that the male brown bear noticed the family's dog barking and may have seen it as prey.

Liniger brought the dog inside, but the bear began to circle around their house before crashing through the window.

The dog ran away, while the couple ran outside and took refuge in separate vehicles. The grizzly bear jumped on the hood of the car that Huber was in before the bear moved to her husband’s vehicle.

The husband briefly startled the animal by honking his horn. When the bear ran away, Huber tried to move to her husband’s vehicle, but the bear returned and grabbed her.

Liniger ran inside to get a rifle, but by the time he returned, the bear had dragged his wife 60 feet. He shot at the animal several times.

One of the shots ricocheted off a tree and hit the woman in the chest. She was taken to a hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries.
