Dear Anchorage Campus Community:My wife was out for her walk and often walks where the bears were spotted in yesterday's email. I called her and she had just walked the trail but saw no bears. She decided to take a different route home.
Yesterday afternoon we reported the presence of a black bear with two cubs near the Integrated Science Building. Today, June 12, the bear and her cubs are still on and around the UAA campus. Just a short time ago, they were spotted on the trail that runs beside Mosquito Lake between UAA and APU. Please continue to be aware of your surroundings as you walk around campus. If you see the bear and/or her cubs, please do not approach them.
UAA is opening and operating a normal schedule today, June 12.
Moose? Yes, they're pretty common on campus. Bears? That's much rarer.
