Girl bitten by bear in unauthorized area

LANGLEY, B.C.—A manager with the Greater Vancouver Zoo says a two-year-old girl who was bitten by a bear somehow got past a locked gate to access an enclosure with three young black bears.

Menita Prasad, the zoo's animal care manager, says there is a combination of chain-link and wooden fencing around the enclosure and steel gates keeping the bears in and the public out.

Bodies of B.C. suspects found

WINNIPEG—A massive manhunt is over after two bodies believed to be British Columbia murder suspects were found in dense brush in northern Manitoba.

RCMP assistant commissioner Jane MacLatchy said the bodies were discovered yesterday morning near the shoreline of the Nelson River, within a kilometre from where several items linked to the two young men were found last week.
