Imagine finding a 900-pound brown bear on your front porch, some people in Kodiak say it’s happening too often. Robert Tucker is one of them.

The 38-year Kodiak resident is organizing others who have concerns about bears that don’t hibernate in winter because they are finding easy meals in town.

“It’s concerning to this group that we have bears in residential neighborhoods,” Tucker said. “They’re not only opening cars, they're breaking into cars. They're getting onto the porches, and they're going through very condensed residential neighborhoods.”
