Video: Bear sprints past cargo planes inside Anchorage International Airport

I used to work a few hundred yards from here.
At the very end of this short video, UPS freighter tails can be seen. Our NW Airlines cargo facility, where we did all the transloads, used to be between UPS and the trees showing behind the tails.

Video: Bear sprints past parked planes at Anchorage’s airport

At first, James Batman thought a black, furry dog had sprinted by him at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, near where FedEx parks its cargo planes.

“Then I looked back again and saw it had no tail….

The bear had gotten into the area by burrowing under a nearby fence, said Trudy Wassel, division operations manager at airport. Airport staff had since repaired the area.

Wassel said the airport has two, full-time wildlife biologists to handle wildlife issues.

“We take it very seriously,” she said.

The airport borders Point Woronzof and Kincaid Park, areas where it’s not uncommon to see black bears, said Ken Marsh, a spokesman at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

Similar to what James Dobson teaches in how to spank a child until rebellion is broken, and then show tender love:

Quite what the little chap had done to incur his mother’s wrath remains a mystery.

But the chances are that he won’t do it again.

This astonishing series of pictures illustrates how, in the world of the brown bear, there are no agonised disputes over corporal punishment of children.

First, the mother glares angrily at her son as he stands a few feet away looking guilty and sheepish.

Within seconds he is backed into a corner with a terrified expression as she roars her disapproval.

Shortly afterwards he finds himself  airborne after she seizes him by the scruff of the neck and propels him from side to side.

However, the fierce encounter at Simferopol Zoo in the Ukraine comes to a peaceful conclusion when Mummy, who weighs the best part of 550lb, gently hugs him to her chest to reassure him that all is forgiven.
