Birth: 1969, Canada
Death: Jun. 5, 2005
Alberta, Canada

A woman jogging along a trail near Canmore, Alta., was killed on Sunday by a grizzly bear that had been captured and relocated out of the region a week earlier. Isabelle Dube was running with two friends on a hiking trail near a golf course in the town located 90 kilometres west of Calgary. The group rounded a bend and saw the bear about 20 to 25 metres ahead of them, on the same path.
Dube chose to climb a tree but was pulled down by the 198-pound bear, said Dave Ealey, a spokesperson for Alberta Sustainable Resource Development. Her two companions backed away slowly until they could no longer see their friend. They didn't see the attack, but could hear Dube shouting at the bear as they sprinted the almost half-kilometre distance to the clubhouse at the SilverTip Golf Course. A wildlife officer, accompanied by one of the women, returned to the site of the attack, where the officer killed the bear with a single shot. Dube, 36, was married and had a five-year-old daughter. She was a competitive mountain biker and she and a partner came third in a seven-day, 600-kilometre bike race last year. Dube was the first person killed by a bear in Alberta since 1998. In lieu of flowers, donations to a trust fund for Dube's daughter will be gratefully accepted. Donations will be accepted at the service or at Canmore Legal Services "in trust for Isabelle Dube" Suite 200, 1350 Railway Avenue, Canmore, AB.
