Woman treated after bear attack


A woman had to be treated in hospital after being attacked by a bear on Friday at Watabeag Lake in northern Ontario, about 80 kilometres from Timmins.

Ontario Provincial Police said two women were walking in an area where there were cottages when they encountere­d the bear.

Police said the bear attacked one of the women. She was treated at a hospital in the Matheson area but was later released.

The OPP said officers located the bear and killed the animal because it displayed aggressive tendencies toward them.
