"According to experts, you should avoid direct eye contact with the bear."

"Don't run away, just back up slowly."

"Wave your arms to let the animal know you're human."

"Don't yell, stay quiet unless the bear attacks."

"Then scream and throw things at the bear."

"If the bear attacks, crawl up into a ball on your side."

"Or lay back on your stomach. And above all, stay calm."

Thumbs up, Julie.
