"Gold Nugget Trathlon racers have come to expect a wildlife sighting or two along the 16-mile course that traces the edges of Anchorage," reports KSPR. "But one race organizer said she can't remember a bear club, with mama nearby, coming within sniffing distance of a runner before."
Dave Battle, wildlife biologist, is concerned by the animal's behavior, saying that it "could be an indication the bear has been fed by humans in the past."
The race organizers sent out a car with bear spray to monitor the race. In future, they might play more music along the race route in order to reduce the risk of startling wildlife.
Frontiersman bear spray comes with chest and belt holster options, perfect for those active in bear country.
