FAIRBANKS — Mushers and others have reported seeing bloodied grizzly tracks on trails near Denali National Park and Preserve.
Four-time Iditarod Trail Sled Dog champion Jeff King lives in the area, and told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that he saw fresh, bloody bear tracks Wednesday.
“I followed them for about a mile up the Yanert Valley,” he said. The bear walked in the middle of the trail, and didn’t appear it wanted to get off it.
King said the fresh tracks made him apprehensive, and the fact they were accompanied by blood didn’t help.
