Teen texts mom about bear moments before being mauled to death”

The victim of the latest attack, which unfolded about 340 miles (550km) north of Anchorage, has not yet been identified. The attack is still under investigation and no names have been released.

According to KTUU, the APD, the Anchorage Fire Dept., Alaska State Troopers, the National Guard, and park rangers were also part of the search.

A worker at the underground mine who was taking geological samples several miles from the main camp was killed by the bear. "Everyone on site is concerned for those involved", Chris Kennedy, general manager at Pogo Mine told CNN affiliate KTVA.

Patrick Cooper, of Anchorage, was competing in the annual mountain race on Sunday that goes through rugged terrain when he apparently encountered the bear.

"I ran up to cheer, came down, and thought, I might as well go back up", he told KTUU.

Two Fish and Game officers and one park ranger tracked the bear into Monday afternoon. "They had the coordinates and Global Positioning System, and that's how they found him". "We didn't know which was which". One runner said he had seen a bear circling a teen.

"It's very unusual", Marsh said of the mauling. "It's sort of like someone being struck by lightning".

"We got word that it didn't look good when we got eyes on the bear around 2:30". There could have been. "But right now, I don't have any information about the bear".
