An Army soldier died from injuries sustained in a bear attack, the military said.

The soldier, who was part of a small group training, was attacked on Tuesday.

The name of the soldier will be released after the military notifies their next-of-kin.

It's unclear what prompted the attack.

Wildlife officials are searching for the bear near the Anchorage Regional Landfill.

The area is closed off until further notice.
