Canadian couple Doug Inglis and Jenny Gusse the reproduction
A couple were eaten by a bear in a Canadian nature reserve. The deaths of Doug Inglis and Jenny Gusse, both aged 62, came as a shock as they phoned an uncle while being attacked by the animal.
“I received a message saying: ‘Serious bear attack,’” Doug Inglis’ uncle reported to the Canadian newspaper Calgary Herald. Along with the couple, their dog also died.
When Canadian authorities arrived at the scene of the accident in Banff National Park, the couple and their dog were already dead. The bear, a 25-year-old female, was found and killed by hunters.
Doug Inglis and Jenny Gusse were on their seventh day of travel when they were killed by the bear. An empty bear spray was found in the tent they were occupying.
The product would have been used, but it did not intimidate the animal.
The story of Doug Inglis and Jenny Gusse recalls the events recounted in the documentary “The Bear Man” (2005) by German filmmaker Werner Herzog.
Winner of more than 22 trophies at international film festivals, the production recounts the death of environmental activists Timothy Treadwell and Amie Huguenard by a bear in Alaska in 2003.
The documentary is marked by the presence of shocking audio of the animal’s attack. Watch the trailer:
