The victim was one of 25 people camping in the Sveasletta area, which is 500 miles north of mainland Norway.

Authorities were responding to a report of a polar bear attack that arrived around 8:30 a.m., according to Chief Superintendent Stein Olav Bredli.

Officers reached the injured woman by helicopter, Bredli said.

“The Frenchwoman suffered injuries to her arm,” he said. “The polar bear that had fled the area was shot at.”

The victim was reportedly being treated at a hospital in Longyearbyen.

The polar bear suffered serious injuries and was euthanized after a “professional assessment”, said Bredli.

Polar bears have been responsible for the deaths of at least five people since 1970, the report said.
