Alaska: Polar bear attacks two people – both dead
First, a polar bear chased several humans in an Alaskan town.
Then he attacks two people. Neither survive the attack.
A polar bear attacked and killed two people in western Alaska. According to initial reports, the animal was initially chasing several people in Wales and then fatally injured a woman and a youth, according to a police statement on Tuesday (local time). A local resident finally shot the bear. Further details were not initially known. Police and government officials wanted to travel to the area on the west coast of the US state “as soon as weather conditions permit”.
According to the newspaper “Anchorage Daily News“, such attacks are extremely rare in the northern US state. In 1990, a polar bear killed a man in the town of Point Lay, about 500 kilometers north of Wales. In 1993, an animal broke through a window into an Air Force radar station and seriously injured a 55-year-old. Due to the melting sea ice as a result of climate change, the animals are increasingly staying on the mainland, making encounters with humans more likely.
