CHIGNIK LAKE -- State officials caught a break in the weather in Chignik Lake on Monday and began scouting for wolves they say killed a 32-year-old school teacher jogging on a remote road.
The medical examiner said Candice Berner was killed in an animal attack on March 8. Alaska State Troopers say they think at least two or three wolves were involved.
They and a state Department of Fish and Game biologist have been in the Alaska Peninsula community since late last week seeking to capture or kill the wolves, though blowing snow had prevented them from taking to the air.
On Monday, winds settled enough to let them get a look around, Fish and Game spokeswoman Jennifer Yuhas said in an e-mail. As of Monday evening, searchers had found old tracks but had not seen or killed any wolves, she said.
