thing else you can find and throw them at the bear, continuously. This may seem like odd advice—why anger a bear, right? But research suggests that the message you’re sending the bear means it hasn’t encoun- tered a defenseless deer or other prey. This might increase the possibility that the bear will lose interest in you and go poking around for a beehive to ransack. If the bear does attack, your approach


would vary based on the type of bear you’re dealing with. Against black bears, fight back—hitting the animal’s eyes and snout. With grizzlies, play dead. Get into a fetal position, and the grizzly should give up. I hope so. After any encounter—when your


pulse returns to normal—report it to the proper authorities. ¿
