Apparently all of these bear sightings in the city are a rare occurrence. I have spoken with a lot of locals who have never seen a bear in the city limits. If I’ve been in Anchorage only a few weeks and have been around all of these bear incidents (oh, by the way that 300 pound eight-foot bear from previous post that tried to break into my neighbors house was sighted again behind my house again) there is something wrong. I think it’s global warming. We need Al Gore up here with a 44 mag to protect us from the onslaught of warmed bears.
Okay, enough of that. This bear was up a tree at an apartment complex next to my gym. He is a small black bear around 100 pounds that was waiting for dark to come down. He had been there all day sleeping. When I went up to the tree, he woke up, gave me a big yawn, showed me his big teeth, and went back to sleep. I’d hate to be coming home drunk or something when this bad boy jumps out of the tree and runs across the road.
