Bear kills baby girl in the USA.

A BEAR killed a five-monthold girl in the US after knocking her out of a stroller and trying to drag the infant into the woods, officials said. The child had been in front of a bungalow in Fallsburg, New York, yesterday with members of her family when the black bear grabbed the stroller, said Mike Fraser, a State Department of Environmental Conservation spokesman.

Isaac Abraham, a community leader from Williamsburg in Brooklyn, said people desperately tried to save the girl.

``People started chasing the bear, throwing rocks at it,'' he said.

The girl's father was able to get her away from the bear, and the animal ran away.

Police shot the bear.
