Hunter shoots, kills bear attacking friend on Southeast Alaska island

Alaska State Troopers say Anthony Lindoff, 36, of Juneau and Josh Dybdahl, 30, of Hoonah were deer hunting on the island, which sits just southwest of Hoonah. "As they approached a spot near some brush to prepare to call for deer they heard a 'whoof', and then a brown bear emerged from the brush charging at them."
