Why being a Boy Scout isn't worth it
ALBRIGHTSVILLE, Pa. - The state Game Commission is setting traps in after a bear bit a 12-year-old camping with his Boy Scout troop.
The bear entered the boy's tent Sunday night and bit down on his, probably trying to get and cereal hidden there, but bit the boy instead, , a game commission spokesman, said Tuesday.
The boy was treated at Blue Mountain Health Systems' Gnaden Huetten campus inand released.
"The bear took off when the boy screamed," Conway said.
For that reason, game officials think the bear was after treats and are not considering the bite an attack, he said.
