Two women being chased by a bear Monday evening on Shore Road East at Mount Hanely ran through the woods and hid out in a cabin until police arrived.
Police received a call at 7:46 p.m. from a woman who said she and her friend were being chased by a bear.
"When police arrived the bear could be seen out in a nearby field," said RCMP Cpl. Dale Guy.
Police escorted the two women to their vehicle. Cpl. Guy said the women had minor injuries -- not from the bear but from running through the woods.
