ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska Wildlife Troopers are searching for whoever dumped a skinned bear carcass in an Anchorage alley.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports (http://bit.ly/1O8BOrq ) the foul-smelling carcass had been skinned and was missing its head and paws when it was dumped behind a small business complex on Wednesday.

Whoever dumped it could face charges of wanton waste of big game because no meat was salvaged.

Similar carcasses were dumped in Anchorage in 2006, when three carcasses missing skin, heads and paws were placed behind a hair salon.

Troopers are asking anyone with information about the incident to call Wildlife Safeguard or trooper dispatch.
