“There has been at least one serious bear and human encounter on a trail at the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area,” Conservation Sudbury said in a Facebook post. “The incident took place on June 28 on the popular Moonlight Beach Trail. This trail runs from the far end of South Bay Road easterly to Moonlight Beach. There is no reason to believe that the bear has left the area. The bear made contact with the trail user who sustained minor injuries and sought medical attention.”
