A freezer full of rotten meat dumped along an Anchorage Hillside road, a family of hungry grizzly bears, and a motorcyclist stopping to pee along the road….what could possibly go wrong?
Everything, but fortunately no one was seriously injured or killed, according to reports from residents along Canyon Road high above Alaska’s largest city on the edge of the wild, half-million-acre Chugach State Park.
The motorcyclist was charged by the bears, started shooting and escaped injury, according to area residents. The status of the bears is less clear. Chugach State Park Ranger Tom Crockett was investigating the scene Friday in an area where the locals are understandably madder than hell about the dumped freezer and dumping along the road in general.
