Alaska is a dangerous place regardless of where you live. Anchorage had 7 resident brown bears in the city limits when I lived there in the mid-80's. People get stomped by moose every year. People just have to be very aware and take great precautions in their actions. While Alaska is intoxicating in its beauty, that very same feeleing from the intoxication can kill you very, very quickly.

They should've had more sense.


I hadn't seen it that way. But if I drag a line with bait on it at sea they call it trolling. Works on the water. Why not on land. Trolling for wolves anyone?
