Alaska State Troopers reported on May 19th that on Tuesday, May 18th, at 11:18 am a 61-year old Chitina man was seriously mauled by a bear near Milepost 117 on the Richardson Highway. The spring bear attack occurred across from Gulkana Airport in the woods between the road and the Alyeska Pipeline access route.

The bear, which was thought to be a grizzly, struck hard. According to locals with knowledge of the incident, the man received severe injuries to his head and chest area but was still able to call 911 for help. 

Emergency response personnel and Alaska State Troopers responded to the victim's 911 call while he was still in the woods after the attack. 

The incident led to a Search and Rescue mission, in which State Troopers and Copper Valley volunteers serving as Fire and Rescue personnel found the man and got him to the Alyeska Pipeline road, which runs alongside the pipe.

The victim, who has not been named, was evacuated to Anchorage for hospital care. Troopers and surveyors were seen along the highway hours after the incident. The bear has not been caught.
