Authorities want to talk to man who donned bear costume and harassed bears in Alaska

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska State Troopers want to talk to a man believed to have donned a fairly realistic bear costume to harass a sow and two cubs.

The incident happened on the Chilkoot River near Haines, Alaska, on Monday. The bears are frequent visitors to a fish weir, where pink salmon are running.
