Cambridge doctor fatally mauled by bear
Husband tries to fend off animal with knife
Community mourns 'wonderful' physician
By Liz MONTEIRO and Brian CALDWELL, Torstar News Service, Kitchener-Waterloo Record
Cambridge -- Armed with only a Swiss Army knife, Cambridge resident Mark JORDAN fended off a predatory bear yesterday, but not before the animal fatally mauled his wife, Dr. Jacqueline PERRY.
"He fought back as hard as he could with the weapon he had at hand," Jolanta KOWALSKI of the Ministry of Natural Resources said yesterday.
"But the bear was relentless in wanting to take her into the bush."
The couple were on a two-week holiday in Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park, 80 kilometres north of Chapleau, Ontario
PERRY, 30, was a family physician at the Grandview Medical Centre on Hespeler Rd. in Cambridge, and JORDAN, 30, is a computer specialist. The couple married nearly four years ago and didn't have any children.
Staff at the medical centre were devastated yesterday, and patients were calling in disbelief, said the centre's lead physician, Dr. Jeff MAIN.
"Jacqueline represented vitality and youthfulness," he said. "It's like losing a child. She was the youngest partner here."
PERRY and JORDAN were alone at the remote campsite yesterday afternoon when a black bear hunting for food attacked, said Const. Karen FARAND/PHARAND of the Superior East Ontario Provincial Police detachment.
The bear went after PERRY, and JORDAN tried to distract it by screaming.
Then, as the animal dragged PERRY into the bush, JORDAN slashed it at least five times with the Swiss Army knife. The bear finally fled, and conservation officers were searching for it yesterday.
In the frantic attempt to save his wife, the injured JORDAN carried her to their kayak and began to paddle to the nearest campsite, FARAND/PHARAND said. He yelled for help and a 54-year-old father and his 30-year-old son from Pennsylvania, who were camping at a site, heard him and got into their pontoon boat.
JORDAN put his wife into the boat, which carried them all off in search of help. About a kilometre away, they spotted and flagged down another boat, which carried a doctor from North Carolina and an off-duty police officer.
The doctor tried to treat PERRY while the boat continued on to the park's main office, about 10 kilometres away.
PERRY died of her injuries. JORDAN was flown to St. Joseph's Hospital in Sudbury, where he was in stable but serious condition yesterday.
This is just the fourth time since 1978 that a black bear has stalked and killed anyone in Ontario. The most recent attack took place in 1992.
"It's very rare and we would prefer to keep it that way," KOWALSKI said. "This is just one of those horrible aberrations."
FARAND/PHARAND said the father and son who came to the aid of the couple had been frightened by the bear about 45 minutes before the fatal attack.
The men were hiking when the bear approached them. They shouted and made as much noise before the bear scampered, FARAND/PHARAND said.
The pair returned to their campsite and were packing up when they heard JORDAN yell for help.
JORDAN's mother, Rosalind JORDAN of Mississauga, who is at her son's bedside in Sudbury, said her daughter-in-law was vivacious, caring and compassionate with her patients and her family.
"She was a bright spark, a bright star," she said. "She knew what she wanted. This just seems so wrong."
PERRY graduated from the University of Toronto's faculty of medicine in 2001. She started at Grandview last November and became a partner at the centre in July. She also worked part time as an emergency room doctor at Brantford General Hospital.
"The community has lost a wonderful physician, and staff and doctors have lost a great colleague and friend," said Jeff POLL, Grandview's administrator.
