Unconfirmed reports which said a bear had mauled a woman in the Ellison area of Kelowna, have proved incorrect.
“We were advised that a bear had mauled a 30-year-old worker and was charging other workers in the orchard,” said Const. Kris Clark.
However, it appears this was not the case.
A bear was reported in the area of Old Vernon Road between Spender Road and Black Road, east of the Kelowna Airport just before 2 p.m. Wednesday.
Police and conservation officers responded to the call; no one was injured.
