Eagle River, Alaska (Reuter) - 'Bearanoia' - fear of bears - has gripped Alaska since two bears killed and partly ate two people this month. On 8 July a black bear stalked a tourist, Darcy Staver, 33, to her cabin near Glenallen, 150 miles north- east of Anchorage, then broke in and killed her. On 10 July, Antone Bear, 6, was killed by a young brown bear that snatched him as he walked with his mother in King Cove, a village 600 miles south-west of Anchorage.
