Alaska State Troopers are investigating a case of waste after two black bear carcasses were found without any of the edible meat salvaged.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that two skinned black bear carcasses were found discarded on Thursday at a transfer site in North Pole.

State hunting regulations require hunters to salvage meat from bears killed between January and May.
