Anchorage Daily News / April
A Sitka blacktailed deer -- unseen in Anchorage until
the last two years -- feeds on a snowless south-facing
hillside at Kincaid Elementary School in West Anchorage
to Southeast Alaska, the deer were introduced to Hawkins
and Hinchinbrook islands in the early 1900s and dispersed
throughout Prince William Sound by swimming island to island.
They have been seen in bays along Passage Canal, just over
the mountains from Portage and Turnagain Arm, but until
recently they had not been seen in Anchorage, according
to Rick Sinnott, Anchorage-area biologist for the Alaska
Department of Fish and Game. Last fall, a small buck was
seen with a moose near O'Malley Road briefly.
