    Two US teenagers are in a serious condition after a grizzly bear attacked a group of seven students learning survival skills in the state of Alaska.

    Four of the teenagers were injured after coming upon a bear walking with her cub, state troopers said.

    Emergency responders found the students early on Sunday using a locating beacon and transported them by helicopter.

    From what I've seen, I'd say most bears avoid Sarah Palin at all costs.

    Did they have a rifle with them? You would be crazy to go into the deep woods in alaska unarmed, or even worse, underarmed. Something in 30.06, preferably semi-auto, like a Garand.
