Bull yak flees at sight of bear, leaving behind cows, calves

Posted: Updated:
    
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - When a curious brown bear showed up at an Anchorage area farm, the cows in a small yak herd there defiantly surrounded the calves.
    
But not the lone bull, Stormy: he sprinted away.
    
KTUU-TV reports that Stormy ran through Eagle Peaks Farm, hopped the fence and kept going.
    
Angie Johnson owns the 25-acre farm with her husband and describes the female yaks as "fierce."
    
She says it was cool to see them stand their ground against the bear, which never got into the field.
    
As soon as Stormy left, one of Angie's teenage sons started tracking the chronic runaway. The bull has broken loose two other times and earned the nickname "Wimpy" for his last escape.
    
He was coaxed back into the pen with the help of a cow.

    Daytime highs for the interior valleys are backing off from triple digits on Monday. Temperatures for California Valley and Shandon will get close to 100 degrees on Monday, but right now daytime highs will range from the upper 80s to upper 90s. High pressure over the area is moving to the east, which is allowing for those interior valleys to cool down this week. However, with extremely dry live and dead fuel paired with gusty onshore winds, fire weather danger remains to be of concern...
