    A female jogger on an Anchorage military base saved herself by managing to hike two miles after a brown bear launched a bloody attack on her. After being separated from her husband while jogging on the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, the woman, who asked that her identity not be released, came across a brown bear with two cubs in tow. Perceiving the jogger as a threat, the bear attacked. Officials have not yet determined if the woman played dead, which is the proper protocol, or fell unconscious. “The survival instinct for that woman is phenomenal. The trauma that she went through and the walk out was heroic,” said Mark Sledge, senior conservation law enforcement officer at the base. It is unclear whether Sarah Palin would be prouder of the jogger or the Mama Bear.
