Makes a Mess And Heads Out


by Mike Ford

An unwanted visitor in Stuckagain Heights area Wednesday evening when a bear wandered into a family's home.

The black bear wandered up to the second floor on the home in the 9700 block of chenaga drive. The home owner, Bruce Talbot says he has seen this particular bear around the neighborhood for the past few weeks. The young male bear left on his own after about 90 minutes of chewing on pillows and marking his territory

Talbot says wildlife is prevalent in that stuckagain area, his son saw a wolverine just this week. The former Denali Park Ranger thinks this bear has been accustomed to being around people and will likely get into mischeif again.
