Alaska Wildlife Troopers have fined a Juneau man for allegedly leaving food out that attracted black bears to the Wickersham area.
Troopers say 60-year-old Keith Fuller received a warning more than a month ago not to leave food scraps unattended at a Sutherland Drive address. Early this month, Fish and Game and Troopers received additional reports about bear activity in the area. They contacted Fuller at the same address and found food, including fish parts, noodles and frozen shellfish in the yard.
Fuller was fined $310 dollars on Sunday.
