    Police: No sign

    of bear attack

    MILTON Police say they have concluded that there was no bear attack in Milton and say drugs may have been involved in the incident.

    Police said 44-year-old Ladonna Merriman and 28-year-old Lucas Gingras were taken to the hospital Wednesday, Merriman with serious injuries and Gingras with minor injuries.

    Police said Gingras told them that a bear and two cubs had attacked them at the camp where they were staying. He says the bear tried to get into the cabin and somehow a camp stove got knocked over and set the cabin on fire.

    Police said Thursday they found no evidence of a bear but found that someone went over a steep ledge and landed on trees and rocks below.
