Alaskan Woman Mauled by Bear While Jogging

An Alaskan woman is recovering after being mauled by a grizzly bear while jogging with a co-worker late Tuesday night, NBC News reported.

Gabbriele Markel, 20, and Kaitlin Haley, 26, were running on a trail along Skilak Lake, 50 miles south of Anchorage, when an adult grizzly bear came out of the thick brush next to the trail and attacked Markel, knocking her to the ground, police said.

Markel was airlifted to Providence Hospital and staff told NBC News she was upgraded to good condition Wednesday afternoon.
