Man In Bear Costume Harasses Mother Bear And Cubs

Authorities want to talk to a man who donned a fairly realistic bear costume — head and all — and wore it when harassing a mother bear and two cubs trying to feed on pink salmon in an Alaska river. The incident happened Monday on the Chilkoot River near Haines, said Alaska Fish and Game Assistant Area Management Biologist Mark Sogge.
