Even though the official cause of death of Candice Berner, a teacher from Chignik Lake, was determined to be an “animal attack,” with wolves being the primary suspects, two wolves were shot and killed one week after the attack.

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game would like to conduct a DNA test to confirm, however local law enforcement is convinced that wolves were responsible.

State officials on Monday found and killed two wolves thought to be responsible for killing a teacher in Chignik Lake last week, according to the Department of Fish and Game.

The wolves were found in the Chignik drainage a week after the March 8 death of 32-year-old Candice Berner, a special education teacher killed in an apparent wolf attack while jogging along a remote road, according to Alaska State Troopers. Troopers say they think at least two or three wolves were involved in the attack.
