    FAIRBANKS, Alaska — Mushers and others have reported seeing bloodied grizzly tracks on trails near Denali National Park and Preserve.

    He followed the tracks for a while, but turned around and headed home. That's when he ran into fresh, bloody bear tracks that hadn't been there five minutes earlier. He said the tracks were so fresh, the blood hadn't yet coagulated.

    "It looked like someone had taken a paint brush and was painting a red stripe down the trail for a mile or two," he said.

    "There are all sorts of reasons a bear might be out now," said Cathie Harms, a spokeswoman for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Fairbanks. "Poor den site choice, an older bear, a hungry bear, a sick bear, a bear that somehow got awakened by a disturbance.

    She said there are many ways a bear could injure its leg, including getting caught in a wolf trap. Other possibilities are that it was stomped by a moose, shot or hit by a car.
