SEATTLE (AP) - The condition of an Alaska wilderness guide who was mauled by a bear last week has improved.
Authorities say Anna Powers of Hawaii has been hospitalized since she and another guide, Michael Justa of Juneau, were attacked by a brown bear Thursday as they were leading cruise ship passengers on a hike in the Tongass National Forest in southeast Alaska.
The Coast Guard rescued the guides and transported them to Sitka, where Justa was treated and released. Powers was then flown to Seattle where she was hospitalized in intensive care. The hospital now says Powers is in satisfactory condition.
