Black bear still awake, patrolling downtown

It may be time to hibernate, but there's at least one black bear in town that's not very sleepy - and most likely, it all comes down to food.

First bear sighting in Juneau reminds all to go into spring safely

It's bear season, so be prepared. KINY has reported a black bear spotted around Switzer Village. Alaska Department of Fish and Game Wildlife Biologist Ryan Scott said this is the first sighting he's heard about, and it's right on time. The first bear sightings are generally reported toward the end of March or beginning of April, although it hasn't been uncommon the first reports to come in as early as mid-March.

No on Prop 1

As a retired Alaska Department of Fish and Game wildlife biologist and former member of the Alaska Board of Game, I strongly believe we must keep the voter initiative for wildlife issues. My main reason is that we need a check on the Legislature, which passes and threatens to pass wildlife legislation that benefits only special interest groups and is not good resource management. When the Legislature has a majority that can override a governor's veto, as it does now, one of the few ways to overturn poor wildlife legislation is with a voter initiative.

Solar-powered fence keeps bears out of smokehouse

DILLINGHAM - While the sight of a brown bear in the wild can be awe-inspiring, the sight of a furry thief in your smokehouse filled with drying salmon can be downright discouraging. Just ask Anuska Olson. She and her husband, Hjalmar, have spent their entire lives in the Dillingham area, and too many times have unwillingly donated their family's fish to an ursine robber.
