Everyone loves bear cubs


Jay Bitney and bear cub

Everyone, even the relative of former Sarah Palin employee turned lobbyist, likes bear cubs. And everyone wants to save them when they’re down and out, which is what Jay Bitney, brother of John, did when he spotted an orphan bear cub while in Platinum Alaska near Bethel. Jay’s out there crushing rock for gravel used in the region. (He’s doing it for money, not as some sort of Sisyphean punishment for the perceived or otherwise sins of his brother).

The cub is now safely in the hands of Fish and Game in Bethel.
