Links: Meanwhile, in Alaska…

A young black bear led police on a two-hour chase through downtown Anchorage last weekย before being safely captured and returned to the wild.

Oh, but there’s one more story from up north…

    Cute and sad! Poor baby just wanted to get somewhere safe. (I was totally pulling for the Pizza Hut.)

      That’s not just *any* ‘Japanese Monster Music – that’s actually the Godzilla theme! Awesome!!!

    Poor little bear. He/she must have been so confused. When it dug under the gate trying to get to the green park you knew it wanted to get back to the forest. So glad they didn’t shoot it. I hate when they do that.

      When it was digging under the fence, so scared, tears came to my eyes. Poor little thing! I’m glad they saved it.

    Bear video would make a nice tourist psa. It looked so nice there. Really clean for a down town.

    Alaska is AWESOME! In Denali National Park a black bear bear with her outrageously cute cub crossed our path; we kept our distance while they sauntered (actually, she sauntered, her cub scampered and frolicked) by. And the bald eagles! They are EVERYWHERE, majestic and huge. Moose too, but they are goofy looking, not majestic.

    I’ve spent time in Anchorage – one of my fav cities on the planet! I miss it. I’m glad they were able to peaceably apprehend that bear – the poor thing must have been so frightened and tired.

      My little town has a couple of goats that are well known for escaping every chance they get. So here it’s “Baaaad boys, baaaad boys…” ๐Ÿ˜€

    I read a couple years ago that a female bald eagle had built her nest directly over the entrance to the Dutch Harbor post office, and was dive-bombing everyone who tried to come in. They had to let them in an alternate door till the chicks were grown and gone! ๐Ÿ˜€

    And I did feel sorry for that poor bear. It must have been so tired and scared! I’m really glad they were able to capture it safely so it could return to the forest. But I have to admit that the music on both the Alaska videos was perfect (says this fan of old rockers)!
