There was another bear sighting in the Interior last night- this time on Fort Wainwright.

According to reports, the Black Bear was first sighted just after 10 p.m. in the area of Chena Bend Golf Course and Lower ASP.

Around 11:30 p.m., another report was sent out warning people to avoid the Badger Gate area as the police patrol was trying to keep the bear away from populated areas and get it to move off post.

The last report of the sighting claimed the bear was moving towards the range area across the Richardson Highway.
