When you start laying out the expenses line by line, a weekend of dipnetting doesn’t sound so cheap.

How much does it cost Kelly and Larry Williams?

“A ton! I was just thinking about that," said Kelly Williams. "We’ve spent, like, hundreds of dollars already and we haven’t gotten anything."

Wildlife officials said they shot a bear after it attacked a man in his camper near Seward during the busy holiday weekend.

The man had fallen asleep with his camper's door open at Fourth of July Beach, across Resurrection Bay from downtown Seward, according to Alaska State Troopers.

Since the Alaska Moose Federation closed up shop in November, Kenai Peninsula charities and organizations have had to get roadkill moose off the highway and into freezers themselves.

It’s been a challenge without AMF’s fleet of trucks and volunteers. And charities say they’ve struggled to get meat to the families and individuals on their lists.

Now, Alaska Wildlife Troopers are looking for small teams of volunteers to sign up online for their roadkill lists.

The Alaska Wildlife Troopers in Soldotna received two complaints recently about a coyote that was running on the snow machine trails off of Treasure Chest Drive in Kenai that had a leg hold trap secured on one of its legs. 

Wildlife Troopers responded to the area and tracked the coyote for about 1 mile, but was unable to locate it. 

The troopers are asking anyone with information on who may be trapping in the area to contact them at the Soldotna post.
