Alaska man attacked by bear while biking to work

Maybe this isn't the best story to share as local activists are encouraging people to bike to work. But police in Alaska say a 45-year-old man riding his bicycle to work survived a grizzly bear attack.

Anchorage police say Sean Berkey was riding his bike to his office at the Alaska Native Medical Center on Tuesday morning when a young female brown bear with a cub charged at him.

Police say the pediatric pharmacist tried to put the bike between him and the sow, but he suffered a laceration to his ear and puncture wounds to his right calf.
