When you’re no longer at the top of the food chain

Airmen rescued a man who suffered “significant injuries” in a bear attack Monday west of the Interior community of Galena, a spokesman for the Alaska National Guard said.

Few details were available by Monday evening. The National Guard had not identified the victim, described the extent of his injuries, or said what kind of bear was involved. The rescue happened 75 miles west of Galena, said David Bedard, spokesman for the Guard’s 176th wing.

    $50 on ussie Smollett, severe rectal trauma, and a bear top.

    Guy does a comic strip up here called “Tundra”. One of the best had tourists stepping off a tour bus with all sorts of critters around. The caption read, “Alaska, off of the bus and on the food chain”.

    Black bear– he wasn’t killed outright.

    Did a TDY (Recall) there for a month when Iran took our embassy. Sat on alert birds to scramble F4E’s. Taking a piss in the Yukon was the pastime along with poker, crying and drinking.

    The Guard sent a Pave Hawk, a C-130J and at least two PJs. That is a serious return on the hunter’s tax dollars.

Play nice.
