Authorities confirmed to Eyewitness News that the bear was spotted about two to three miles from the scene. A bear attacked two young children on Monday.

Investigators said the bear was “clearly a car accident.”

Lau said he wasn’t sure if this was correct as the results had not come back from the lab as of Thursday night. A bear they set a trap for. Witness News will update you as soon as DNA results are returned.
