Scott Babcock was wrapping up an early morning runway inspection at America’s farthest north airport when he saw what he thought were a couple of wolves.
He took a closer look through his headlights Thursday and saw something bigger and badder.
Two young polar bears ran away when they saw the Alaska airport worker’s truck approach.
“Well, it’s just another day at the Will Rogers-Wiley Post Memorial Airport,” Babcock says as the bears scamper off.
If someone walked out of building and was trapped between a polar bear and a fence, “things could get real ugly real fast,” he said.
