Teen Mauled to Death by Black Bear During Annual Alaskan Trail Race

first_imgA 16-year-old runner was pursued, mauled and ultimately killed by a black bear during a popular annual trail race outside of Anchorage, Alaska last week.The Robert Spurr Memorial Hill Climb was in its 29th year when the bear attack—which Race Director Brad Precoscky called “the worst thing that could happen”—happened.The runner, who was identified by local authorities as 16-year-old Patrick Cooper of Anchorage, texted his mother immediately after seeing the bear, but by the time rescuers made it to his location the teen had already been killed by the animal.“The mother was here with her family, her children,” Anchorage Police Dept. Sgt. Nathan Mitchell told local news affilate KTUU. “They were running the race.”The attack occurred just before 12:30 p.m. on Father’s Day, June 19.After receiving a cell phone call from her distressed son, who was being actively chased by the bear at the time of the call, Patrick Cooper’s family immediately alerted race organizers, and a search was quickly mobilized.Using GPS coordinates obtained via Cooper’s phone, searchers were able to pin-point the location where the young man was lying, but the presence of the bear that attacked him prevented the search and rescue team from immediately entering the vicinity.With more development and fewer forests, bears and people live together in increasingly crowded quarters. Can we all get along? Learn more in our in-depth digital feature, The Bear Truth.Eventually, a park ranger with the Chugach National Forest—the venue where the race took place—arrived and neutralized the bear with a shotgun. Cooper’s body was then life lighted from the scene.According to rangers, the black bear that attacked Patrick Cooper weighed approximately 250 lbs. It was wounded by a shotgun slug to the face but fled the scene immediately afterward. According the Alaska Daily News, Chugach National Forest rangers are still trying to locate and kill the wounded animal.last_img read more

Tennis News Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and 15-year-old Coco Gauff eye Wimbledon quarterfinal

first_imghighlights Coco Gauff faces world number one Simona Halep in the fourth round.Roger Federer is bidding to win his ninth Wimbledon title.Rafael Nadal has won the French Open 12 times. London: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic share top billing on ‘Manic Monday’ at Wimbledon with teenage sensation Coco Gauff. Eight-time champion Federer, four-time winner Djokovic and Nadal, a double champion, all play last 16 ties against opponents who have never before progressed this far. Federer, the second seed, tackles Italy’s world number 20 Matteo Berrettini in what will be the Swiss great’s record 17th fourth-round appearance at the All England Club.     “I don’t know him very well, so that makes it a bit more tricky,” said Federer, chasing a 21st Grand Slam title. Nadal, the champion in 2008 and 2010, also has an unexpected opponent in the shape of world number 69 Joao Sousa, the first Portuguese player to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon.     Nadal has a 2-0 career advantage over the 30-year-old Sousa, with both wins coming on clay. “He’s a super dangerous opponent against everybody. He is very quick, has a very good physical performance,” said Nadal, looking to back up his 12th Roland Garros title with a third Wimbledon.    Djokovic faces grasscourt rookie     Djokovic insists he will not be complacent about his chances of reaching the final for the sixth time.     The highest seed that the world number one can face before the final is number 15 Milos Raonic, the 2016 runner-up from Canada.     But first up for the defending champion and a 16-time major winner is 21-year-old Ugo Humbert from France who is playing in his first Wimbledon.     Until this year, world number 66 Humbert had never played a grass court match either as a junior or professional. Should Djokovic emerge triumphantly, he would face either Belgian 21st seed David Goffin or Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco in what would be his 11th quarter-final at the tournament. Raonic, beaten by Andy Murray in 2016 final, has made the quarter-finals in the last two years.     So far at this Wimbledon, he has fired 59 aces across three rounds and dropped serve just once. Raonic tackles Argentine 26th seed Guido Pella who has reached the last 16 at a Slam for the first time — at the 20th attempt.     The 29-year-old Pella knocked out last year’s runner-up and fourth seed Kevin Anderson in the third round. Roberto Bautista Agut, the Spanish 23rd seed, faces French 28th seed Benoit Paire with both men aiming to make the quarter-finals for the first time. Monday’s other ties see 2017 semi-finalist Sam Querrey face last-16 debutant and US compatriot Tennys Sandgren.     Japan’s Kei Nishikori, a quarter-finalist in 2018, tackles Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan. Nishikori recorded his 400th tour victory when he beat Steve Johnson in Saturday’s third round.’Keep it up’     In the women’s fourth round, 15-year-old Gauff must overcome the former number one Simona Halep.     “I feel like I’ve always been confident in myself,” said 313-ranked qualifier Gauff who shocked five-time champion Venus Williams in the first round. Seven-time champion Serena Williams believes her teenage compatriot could go the whole way.     “I think there are some 15-year-olds, like me, who wouldn’t know what to do at Wimbledon,” said Williams. “Then you have a 15-year-old like Coco who knows what to do.”     Australia’s world number one Ashleigh Barty looks in ominous form and although she lost on the grass on the only previous occasion she played last 16 opponent, Alison Riske, it was three years ago. Williams may also be hitting form at the right moment as her win over Julia Goerges on Saturday was by far the most impressive performance of her three matches.     The 37-year-old, who is still tantalisingly one away from equalling Margaret Court’s haul of 24 Grand Slam titles, faces Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro.  “I just need to keep it up,” said Williams.     Williams will play Barty in the last eight if both come through Monday’s matches. Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova plays Britain’s Johanna Konta in what will be her first appearance in the last 16 since 2014 when she won the second of her titles.center_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Uganda’s defender Denis Iguma (R) evades Botswana’s midfielder Lebogang Ditsile during the AFCON 2017 qualifying match Botswana vs Uganda June 4 AFP PHOTOAfrica soccer governing body CAF has changed the fixtures of the last 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers, placing matches of all the teams competing for the two best losers spots to Sunday September 4.Games involving Tunisia versus Liberia, Togo versus Djibouti, Mali versus Benin, DR Congs versus CAR, Uganda versus Comoros and Burkina Faso versus Botswana are now all scheduled for September 4.This action, going by previous fixtures and times of final international group games, is usually to ensure there is no unfair advantage to any of the team – with some teams putting in no effort knowing the other results, or settling for a result which favors both teams in a match.Uganda’s game against Comoros was initially set for Saturday September 3.In a statement, Uganda’s football governing body FUFA said “Federation of Uganda Football Associations confirms changes in the date and kick off time of the crucial 2017 AFCON qualifier between Uganda Cranes and Comoros.”“The new date is Sunday 4th September, 2016 with kick off set for 5pm at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole. The change is as a result of the decision taken by CAF which is with in their jurisdiction.” Cranes taskAll Uganda has to do is beat Comoros to advance to their first Nations Cup final since 1978. If Cranes win their final game, they will be one of two second based placed teams, that make it to Gabon.They set themselves up in this position by stunning Botswana 2-1 in June. 13 group winners and best two runners-up from 11 four-team groups qualify for 2017 Cup of Nations with hosts GabonOnly four other teams, CAR, Tunisia, Mali (already qualified) and Benin can end up with 13 points, but if CAR and Tunisia get the 13 points, they will deny their 2nd placed teams, as that will leave them at 10 and 12 points respectively.Mali and Benin play each other in the final match, so even if both get 13 points, one will be group leader – leaving Uganda as the second team at 13.Teams that have qualified for 2017 Africa Cup of Nations Guinea-Bissau (Group E winners)Morocco (Group F winners)Egypt (Group G winners)Ghana (Group H winners)Algeria (Group J winners)Senegal (Group K winners)Zimbabwe (Group L winners)Cameroon (Group M winners)Mali (Group C  winners or runnersup)Groups in contention for two second best qualification placesGroup A  Liberia      5 3 1 1 10 4 10Tunisia      5 3 1 1 12 2 10Togo          5 2 2 1  6  4  8Djibouti     5 0 0 5  1 19 0Final gamesTunisia vs LiberiaTogo vs DjiboutiGroup BDR Congo     5 4 0 1 12 5 12C.A.R.           5 3 1 1 8  7   10Angola          5 1 1 3 6  7   4Madagascar 5 0 2 3 4 11 2Final gameDR Congs vs CARGroup CMali            5 4 1 0 8 1 13Benin         5 3 2 0 10 5 11S.Sudan     5 1 0 4 3 11 3E.Guinea   5 0 1 4 2 6 1Final gamesMali vs BeninGroup DB.
