Orono man finds four bears living in a rotten tree
By John Holyoke, BDN Staff
Paul Melanson's friend went out to shoot a few arrows into a target on Saturday, but when the archery buff went looking for an errant arrow, he got a big surprise: Right behind the target was a hollow tree that was serving as the winter den for a mother bear and her three hefty yearling cubs.
