This was no earthquake.
A station that detects seismic activity at Kultieth River Mountain in southeast Alaska recorded such string tremors earlier this month that scientists initially believed that an earthquake had hit the area.
But it was no earthquake.
It was a bear.
A big one.
Field engineer Scott Dalton told KTUU-TV, “We aren’t sure for certain it was a bear, but the data shows indicates it was something big moving out there before the data stopped coming in,” field engineer Scott Dalton told KTUU-TV. We still have power out there so we think that means that an animal dug up the cables between the sensor and the fiberglass hut that provides power.”
