Bear and 2 Cubs Steal Kids' Lunch Boxes at Alaska Day Camp

An Alaskan black bear and her two cubs have been hanging around the city of Anchorage and the other day they stole several lunch boxes at a children's day camp on the Alaska Pacific University campus.

Katie Adrian, program manager at the summer program run by Camp Fire USA, tells The Anchorage Daily News the bears wandered onto the school's soccer fields Monday, soon after the campers ate lunch at picnic tables and left behind some snacks. The bears carried a few lunch boxes into the woods and dug in.

The bears weren't aggressive, and camp staff corralled the kids. After this, she said the campers will eat elsewhere and store their food indoors.

David Battle of the Alaska Fish and Game Department said there are no plans to remove the bears. He said the agency doesn't consider them a public safety hazard.

The day before, a bear interrupted a baseball game in Anchorage.

Local NBC affiliate KTUU Anchorage reported that Larry Johansen was filming and broadcasting an American Legion baseball game on Post25Baseball.org Sunday when what appeared to be a black bear wandered by the outfield fence.

"Big bear out there," a man in the crowd can be heard exclaiming as one by one the players tense up and look over their shoulders. Some of the infielders move further in, away from the creature but, as it becomes clear the bear isn't going to make its way through the chain-link fence, an umpire and a few of the outfielders take a few steps forward to get a better look.
