High above Alaska’s largest city in a subdivision on the edge of the sprawling half-million-acre Chugach State Park, a delinquent young black bear might well owe his life to a snout full of porcupine quills.

But for that injury, the cinnamon-colored bear – which has already broken into and ransacked one home and now has residents afraid to leave their doors open – would have been reported to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game days ago.

The quills, however, make the bear a sympathetic creature, and so residents have tried to ignore the troubling antics of this bear and a black companion, apparently a sibling.
