  • 3 Text - As a follow-up to a previous post, if you come upon a stationary bear, move away slowly and sideways; this allows you to keep an eye on the bear and avoid tripping. Moving sideways is also non-threatening to bears. Do NOT run, but if the bear follows, stop and hold your ground. Like dogs, they will chase fleeing animals. Do NOT climb a tree. Both grizzlies and black bears can climb trees. Do NOT push down a slower friend (even if you think the friendship has run its course). Via @nationalparkservice
  • 4 Text - Stay calm and remember that most bears do not want to attack you; they usually just want to be left alone. Don't we all? Identify yourself by making noise so the bear knows you are a human and not a prey animal. Via @nationalparkservice
  • 5 Text - Help the bear recognize you as a human. We recommend using your voice. (Waving and showing your opposable thumb means nothing to the bear) The bear may come closer or stand on its hind legs to get a better look or smell. A standing bear is usually curious, not threatening. off Via @nationalparkservice

  • 10 Text - Freddie Miller I made a deal with sharks and bears a long, long time ago. I'll stay out of their territory and they stay out of the city. So far all sides have been faithful to that pact. I certainly won't be the first to break it. 965 Like · Reply · 1w Via @nationalparkservice
