Troopers ask that local residents do not call law enforcement about Brown Bears on K-Beach, unless the bears are causing physical harm to property or animals.
Soldotna Troopers are currently aware of a mama Brown Bear and three cubs (2 or 3 year olds) in the K Beach area, rummaging through trash.
They urge local residents to take care of all outside garbage and barbecues, to eliminate any smells which may attract the four bears.
The bears are currently between Murwood and Gaswell. Troopers say they do not want to have to shoot the bears, and ask homeowners to stay clear of the animals and clean their areas as thoroughly as possible.
Do not call Troopers unless the bears are attacking people, animals, or are trying to break into houses. The local post has been flooded with calls from anxious residents.
