Hunters really up a creek

Sometimes you get the bear -- and sometimes the bear gets your raft.

Alaska State Troopers report several members of a bear-hunting party found themselves up a creek without a paddle or a raft.

The hunters were stranded early yesterday on a river in southeast Alaska, after a momma bear with two cubs shredded their Zodiac inflatable.

Troopers say the hunters walked upriver and fired their rifles to attract attention.

A local resident came to their rescue in a canoe.

No one was hurt.
