Searching for a Bear in the Smokies

ANCHOR IN: AND THE SEARCH CONTINUES NOT FOR A MAN…BUT FOR A BEAR.

VO: SMOKY MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK RANGERS ARE SEARCHING FOR A BEAR THAT ATTACKED A TEENAGER. OFFICIALS SAY ON SATURDAY NIGHT A 16 YEAR OLD BOY…GABRIEL ALEXANDER…WAS SLEEPING IN A HAMMOCK WHEN THE 250 POUND BEAR PULLED HIM FROM IT AND BIT HIM IN THE HEAD. OFFICIALS SAY HE AND HIS FATHER…GREG ALEXANDER…HAD FOLLOWED ALL THE RECOMMENDED BACKPACKING PROCEDURES. GREG FENDED OFF THE BEAR THEN AIDED HIS SON. GABRIEL SUFFERED FROM LACERATIONS TO THE HEAD AND OTHER MULTIPLE INJURIES…BUT WAS CONSCIOUS THE WHOLE TIME. OFFICIALS SAY HE IS IN STABLE CONDITION. RANGERS COLLECTED D-N-A FROM THE ATTACK SITE…AND JUST LIKE HUMANS BEARS CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY THEIR D-N-A. IF THEY FIND THE BEAR…RANGERS PLAN ON KILLING IT.
