ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - State wildlife officials are warning people in the Rabbit Creek area of Anchorage to be aware of a brown bear that is protecting the kill site of a moose calf.

KTUU reports (https://is.gd/apBUDy) the site is near the area of the intersection of Rabbit Creek and Elmore roads.

The area remains dangerous, and state fish and game officials urge hikers and gawkers trying to get a glimpse of the bear to be cautious.

Signs have been posted in the area. If people see such a sign, they should turn around and leave. Department spokesman Ken Marsh says bears are very defensive of their kill sites.

Officials will monitor the situation until the bear leaves the area or they can safely remove what’s left of the moose calf carcass.
