Life in Alaska with Bears
I am not looking forward to springtime in Alaska with Bears. This photo above is of a brown bear in Anchorage that the police had to kill. If you click the link it will take you to the newpaper article about what happened. This bear had killed a moose calf and drug it into a south side Anchorage, Alaska neighborhood very close to our home in Anchorage. This bear unfortunately was just too close to people, especially families with children.
The brown bear video above from Alaska, you can see here what happened, and also see the article about how it killed a residents llama and that 2 other brown bears came into the residents home yard! That would have scared me to death. But one gets sort of “use” to hearing about weird bear happenings. We also have to watch the trails we are walking on in the city because the trails go along a creek that are frequented by bears. You get use to looking at the ground for animal tacks. If you aren’t looking out for bears, then you have to watch for moose because they will charge you on trails.
Last year we had bears in our front yard in Anchorage, Alaska because they know when the garbage runs are! Now that I have grandchildren I am much more alert as to my surroundings…even backyards!
Last year I had some appointments at Providence Hospital, Anchorage, AK and was told there is a bear loose in the parking area! The hospital was telling people to park in a different parking lot. Not far from this hospital is Regional Hospital and they had a moose walk into the hospital! With automatic doors, the moose just walked right in! What would you do if you saw a moose walking down the hall in a hospital… hahahahaha.
I hope this summer brings a uneventful bear season to Alaska
