Visitors to Alaska's Denali National Park this summer may be able to catch a glimpse of something you don't see every day: a three-pawed grizzly bear.

A picture of the bear shows it to be missing about half of its right front leg.

"We call him Tri-pawed," park biologist Pat Owen told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. "He kind of hops around."

The bear, the first Owen has seen missing a paw in 23 years with the Park Service, was first spotted in the park last year, when the wound was still bloody, she told the paper. She wondered at that time whether the injury would prevent the bear from getting food, digging its winter den or defending itself.

But it seems to have done just fine,

The road ahead will not be easy for Aimee Copeland, the Georgia woman whose freak zip-lining accident led to a flesh-eating bacteria infection that's kept her on life support for days.

She's showing small signs of recovery, but faces even more surgeries due to the necrotizing fasciitis that has already taken her leg.

"Today Aimee is responsive and coherent," Copeland's father, Andy, wrote on his blog on Thursday. "She is responding to specific commands, and even selected the music she wanted to listen to. ... Unfortunately, her blood vessels in her hands and in her remaining foot have died, and thus they will have to be amputated too." Copeland, 24, has been in critical condition since

Colorado teenagers are alleging that two mothers who chaperoned their high school prom sprayed Lysol disinfectant on teens they thought were dirty dancing, calling them “sluts” and “whores.”

The Manitou Springs High School teens filed a police report after they said the two chaperones, Jennifer Farmer and Hannah Rockey, sprayed them while they were dancing, according to ABC News’ Denver affiliate KMGH. Manitou Springs is a small town just outside of Colorado Springs.

One mother complained to a security guard that the students were dancing “like they are having sex with their clothes on,” according to the police report obtained by KMGH.

One of the students went to police and asked to

Time magazine's breastfeeding cover story asks: "Are You Mom Enough?" But it might as well ask, "Who Says Print Is Dead?"

The magazine is the talk of the nation this morning, dominating the morning talk shows, the radio shows, social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, and that gold standard of relevancy, Google. It's the No. 1 search term there today.

"This is a cover that has the entire nation talking," said magazine expert Samir Husni. "When was the last time you saw a story do that," unless it was a breaking news event? "This is an example of print well done. It's a stroke of genius ... the print industry really needed this cover to show they are still the movers and s

Tombstone, Arizona - Tombstone, population 1,400, is suing the United States government in what will probably become a landmark legal battle.

Tombstone has survived fires, floods, and a few poorly made Hollywood films. Now the town "too tough to die" is worried that it's going to run dry, not of liquor but cool, clear, water. Tombstone's place in history with lawman Wyatt Earp, could save it.

Many of the facts surrounding the events leading up to the history of Tombstone, including the famous gunfight at the OK Coral, are uncertain. Newspapers of the day took sides with their reports editorializing their own opinions and much of what is known of the event is based on a long preliminary

Three children have been placed in foster care, and a Minnesota couple could face a year in prison for a punishment that went too far.

It was a zip lining accident that went from bad to much, much worse.

Just one week ago, Aimee Copeland, 24, was enjoying a trip kayaking down a creek with some of her friends in Carrollton, Ga. But when Copeland stopped to ride on a homemade zip line along the water, the line snapped and cut a large gash in her left calf.

Now the University of West Georgia graduate psychology student is in critical condition after a flesh-eating bacterium entered her body through the wound in her calf, causing her leg to be amputated Friday night, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The Facebook page, “Believe and pray for a miracle to happen for Aimee Copeland” has been set up for people to

An Indiana mother who sent her gay son to school with a stun gun after administrators apparently didn't do enough to stop the bullying against him said she would do it again -- even though the teen now faces expulsion.

"I do not promote violence -- not at all -- but what is a parent to do when she has done everything that she felt she was supposed to do ... at the school?" the mother, Chelisa Grimes, told CNN's Don Lemon on Sunday. "I did feel like there was nothing else left for me to do, but protect my child."

The school district held an expulsion hearing last week but no decision has been announced.

Grimes sent her son, Darnell "Dynasty" Young, to Arsenal Technical High School in
