Interestingly, the article says that more people are killed yearly in accidents with firearms in Alaska than by brown bears. I found out about this accident on another forum...nothing was ever mentioned about anybody running, only that a mother griz suddenly appeared with cub and apparently as surprised as the NOLS group. Sounds like at the wrong place at the wrong time to me. Both parties surprised each other.

Thanks for finding this mns.
