    ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Two employees of an Alaska backcountry lodge startled an adult grizzly bear while running on a trail in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. The bear stepped out of thick brush and mauled one woman while the other ran for help. Gabriele Markel, 20, was recovering Wednesday at an Anchorage hospital. Her wounds, which authorities described as bites and scratches on her head, back and arm, weren't considered life-threatening. She was upgraded to good condition from fair on Wednesday, authorities said. Markel and a co-worker, Kaitlyn Haley, 26, of California, were running Tuesday afternoon on the Cottonwood Creek Trail near...

    Austin, Texas Police Chief Art Acevedo was asked to defend the actions of his officers, who subdued and arrested a jogging woman because she was wearing earbuds and couldn’t hear their instructions. His response to the controversy was this: It could be worse–at least she wasn’t sexually assaulted. That response upset many Texas residents, and Acevedo was forced to walk back his comments on Monday. Austin police arrested the jogging woman last week. They were stationed at an intersection near the University of Texas’s Austin campus, giving jaywalking tickets to dozens of people. The woman ran right past them, unable...

    For a few days, it seemed that the strange tale of the unidentified jogger who had lain unconscious in a Brooklyn hospital for a week after collapsing in Prospect Park on New Year’s Eve would end happily. When his half brother identified him this week as Rynn Berry, it was too late; he was taken off life support on Thursday. When emergency responders took Mr. Berry, carrying keys and an asthma inhaler but no identification, to the hospital at 1 p.m. on Dec. 31, he had already gone into cardiac arrest and he soon lost brain function.

    Driving along at 35 MPH on a 2-lane avenue around 10 PM, a single headlight appeared in my car's path. I swerved onto a side street, shaken and uncomprehending. Leering down at me, astride a high tech bike, I could see in the light of the street lamp the person responsible for the near-miss. I rolled down the window and said -- remaining surprisingly noncombative -- "Hey man, I barely missed hitting you. You could have been killed." Expecting a thank you or an apology, instead I was the victim of an insane tirade, to the effect: "Hey buddy, you...

    An Allen woman said she got a painful reminder two weeks ago of the wild -- while jogging in a suburban neighborhood. The 39-year-old woman, who asked she not be identified, said a coyote took a bite out of her thigh as she rounded a curve on a popular Allen jogging trail. "I think I surprised it," she said. "That's what the problem was. It was dark, really quiet, and it probably thought I was attacking it."

    FREDERICK, Colo.—A Catholic priest faces an indecent exposure charge after police said he went jogging in the nude about an hour before sunrise. The Rev. Robert Whipkey told officers he had been running naked at a high school track and didn't think anyone would be around at that time of day, a police report said. He told officers he sweats profusely if he wears clothing while jogging. "I know what I did was wrong," he said in the report. Whipkey did not return phone messages. His attorney, Doug Tisdale, told the Longmont Times-Call that Whipkey had no comment. Whipkey, 53,...

    DELTONA, Fla. -- A woman who went on a jog with her two dogs Monday night attempted to shoot a pit bull because she felt threatened, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office. According to sheriff's deputies, Christine Bruce was jogging past 1435 Gainesville Drive in Deltona when she observed a pit bull in the front yard. Bruce told officials that the dog's owner, Rickey Ward, was exciting the animal in such a way that she felt like she was going to be attacked.

    SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. A South Kingstown man who became ill after he drank from a beer bottle ingested a caustic liquid. Police say the liquid that sent Michael Darigan to the hospital last Sunday resembles lye. Lye is a highly concentrated solution of potassium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide. It's often found in commercial drain and oven cleaners. The 53-year-old Darigan found the bottle along his jogging route last week. Sergeant Thomas Owens says there's no evidence suggesting Darigan was personally targeted. Local police sent two bottles of the liquid to the state Department of Health for testing. Darigan's wife has...

Police say the 45-year-old woman was set free after she agreed to let the suspect make the video, pretend she was into it and kiss him. They had sex for 20 minutes and he replayed the video. "The male was very happy about it," an arrest affidavit said. The suspect then left her at a Denver motel with $2 in...

    Two men are being hunted by police today after a dramatic breakthrough in the search for the killers of jogger Margaret Muller. The men were spotted sprinting from Victoria Park in Hackney moments after the American artist was brutally stabbed to death. A witness, who was on his way to work, told detectives the men ran from the rose garden area of the park, where the 27-year-old artist was attacked at about 8am on Monday, towards Cawley Gate.

    State Justice Charles Tejada, moving more quickly than defense lawyers and prosecutors had expected, dismissed all indictments against the five less than a week before Christmas. His ruling wasn't expected until Jan. 6. The decision came two weeks after Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau recommending dropping all the convictions in the case. The decision to dismiss the indictments means prosecutors would have to start from scratch with a grand jury to retry the five. Tejeda's decision came after lawyers from the police detectives' union unsuccessfully tried to block his ruling. The Detectives' Endowment Association wanted an evidentiary hearing first,...

Robert Morgenthau's call to exonerate the five men convicted in the 1989 Central Park Jogger case, you write, "Fair-minded people are appalled by the prosecutorial missteps and overreaching that led to the faulty convictions of five teenagers..." I submit that fair-minded people who have followed the case since its bloody inception, are...

    FRANCONIA, N.H. (AP) — Collisions between moose and cars are common this time of year, but joggers? A California man visiting Franconia is nursing a sore shoulder after bumping into a moose on a bike path Wednesday. Steve Skelton said he jogged around a corner and found a mother moose and her calf running toward him. The moose hit his shoulder, then fell and skidded on the wet ground before running into the woods. Skelton was knocked to the ground but wasn’t seriously injured.
