Although bear attacks are rare, a man should always be on the lookout for one. You never know when something like this will come in handy.
Whether you’re dealing with a grizzly or a black bear, the way you respond to an attack differs.
Knowing what kind of bear you’re dealing with is the first step in surviving a bear encounter.
What to do If a Grizzly Bear attacks you
1. Always keep bear spray on hand. Experts advise hikers in bear country to carry bear pepper spray. This stuff is usually enough to put a stop to a bear.
2. Do not try to run away, the bear will automatically think you are his prey and chase after you. You will not be able to outrun a bear.
A Black bear is different on how it acts. This is what you should do if a Black Bear tries to attack you.
1. Don’t climb a tree, Black Bears are great at climbing trees, so you should avoid trees at all costs.
2. Fight back, when a Black Bear tries to attack you, aim for his face and nose.
if you ever encounter a bear, make sure to know what type of bear it is and use the appropriate tactics to save yourself!
