ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Alaska Department of Fish and Game says a black bear that mauled a man at a campground north of Anchorage won't likely threaten other people.
Spokesman Ken Marsh told the Anchorage Daily News (http://bit.ly/11sQbZW ) the bear was "pretty much goaded" into the attack Saturday near Eklutna Lake Campground because the man fed it meat from a church barbecue. He may be charged with illegally feeding wildlife.
Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says the man had been drinking and went for a bike ride, taking some of the food along. He came across the bear and threw it a piece of meat. When he offered the bear another piece, it attacked.
The man was treated for punctures wounds and scratches at an Anchorage hospital.
