From the Fairbanks Daily-News Miner:

_The Anchorage Assembly will consider a proposal to hire a specialist to track bears in the city.

The proposal from Eagle River Assemblyman Bill Starr calls for the city to hire a seasonal wildlife specialist to track bear sightings. The person hired would try to harass the animals out of town. If necessary, the person would also have the power to relocate or kill bears.

Starr said killing bears would be a last resort._
