NJ Bear Attack Never Actually Happened

SUSSEX COUNTY, N.J. - It looks like a bear attack in New Jersey wasn't quite what we thought it was.

Officials now say a bear that made its way into a campsite in Sussex County didn't harm two boys.

Doctors say minor wounds found on the boys were old and they weren't caused by the bear.

The bear wandered into a campsite in Stokes State Forest Wednesday morning and tried to get into some tents but it never made it inside.

A park ranger shot the bear in the neck but officials haven't been able to track it down.
