ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- It wasn't easy, but the Alaska Museum of History and Art now has a new exhibit.
The museum recently purchased an 8'6" prehistoric bear skeleton from a local gift shop.
The museum's Tom Bennett said workers tried to assemble it a couple weeks ago but hit a snag when the stand supporting it started to bend.
"So the bear, once we got it up, it literally started leaning forward like it wanted to graze. So, we took it all back apart again and straightened it, beefed it back up, put it back together again," Bennett said.
