Airlifts:

Wednesday afternoon, a Coast Guard helicopter crew rescued an ailing Los Angeles detective from a fishing boat in Peril Strait, about 60 miles southwest of Juneau. The man suffered abdominal pains and bleeding. He was transported to Sitka for medical treatment.

Animal encounters:

Police received four calls Thursday about bear sightings. Calls came in about 11 a.m. from South Franklin; about 10 p.m. from Gold Belt Avenue; about 10:45 p.m. from Kiowa Drive; and about 11 p.m. from Trinity Drive.

Police responded Thursday to reports of two black bears in the Gastineau Avenue and South Franklin Street area. One man thought he was charged by one of the bears, but it turned out he was actually blocking a route of egress. The bears, one blondish and one black in color, have been using Decker Way (the stairway near the Glory Hole that rises from Franklin to Gastineau) as a thoroughfare. First spotted about two weeks ago, the bears continue to dart in and out of the brush and scrounge for available garbage. Alaska Department of Fish and Game biologist Neil Barten said he might try to catch them in a trap.
