Bear that mauled search party volunteer likely killed Alaskan hiker
Police in Alaska say the same brown bear that killed a missing hiker may have mauled a volunteer who was part of the search effort. Michael Soltis, 44, went hiking on Monday in Eagle River, outside Anchorage, but didn't return. A search party was looking for him Wednesday when the bear attacked the volunteer and mauled his leg. He is expected to survive. Police later found Soltis' body near the scene.
