    Fish heads dumped near Alaska school attracts bears

    Tuesday, August 21 2018 1:13 PM EDT2018-08-21 17:13:52 GMT

    Anchorage police are looking for a man who dumped fish heads in woods near an elementary school.    The perpetrator won't have to clean up. A grizzly bear took care of that.    The fish dumper, however, faces a $300 fine for discarding garbage that attracts animals.    Alaska families regularly catch dozens of salmon and are urged to properly dispose of fish parts in fast-moving rivers, ocean waters or regular garbage disposal.
