John McCleary at Parks & Rec sent out the following notice today. The salmon seem to be late arriving in Campbell Creek, but they are showing up, to the bears are, too:

"Tuesday, July 11th at 9am, a jogger was charged by a brown bear on the Tour of Anchorage Trail (Old Rondy) between the Campbell Creek Science Center parking area and the wooden bridge (South Fork Campbell Creek) downstream towards Tudor Rd.

"The bear was just off the side of the trail in the grass and did not notice the jogger until he was approximately 20 feet away. The bear raised his head startled and charged the jogger. The jogger stopped, raised his arms and yelled at the bear. The charge stopped at approximately 6 feet, the bear looped back and charged again stopping at the same distance. After the second charge the bear ran into the woods and crossed Campbell Creek."

Personally I am waiting for the first sighting of a brown bear on Brown Bear trail. We need a good story to go along with the trail.. maybe even a picture of one playing on our ramp or something.

A black bear on Black Bear would also be appopriate.. anyone got any spare fish that we can turn our ramp into a bait station..

Ok.. I'm being bad.. ignore most of what I just said....
