Michigan Black Bear Shot By DNR Isn't Same Animal That Attacked 12-Year-Old Abby Witherell

Authorities from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources trapped and killed a black bear after it mauled a 12-year-old girl in an attack earlier this month. Or so they thought: the stage agency admitted Monday that they bagged the wrong bear.

DNA evidence showed that the black bear shot and killed by DNR officers in Wexford County, Mich. on Aug. 18 wasn't the samebear who attacked 12-year-old Abigail Wetherell of Haring Township while she was jogging on an unpaved road in the woods near her grandparents' home Aug. 15. She was attacked twice by the bear, and it took 100 stitches to close her puncture wounds and deep cuts.
