What should you do if caught by a bear?
Stand and face the bear directly. Never run away from or approach him. Make yourself look as big as possible by spreading your arms or, better yet, a coat. Make as much noise as possible by yelling, banging pots and pans or using other noisemaking devices.
What to do if you see a brown bear in your yard?
If you encounter a bear on the trail, or in your campsite, stop what you are doing and evaluate the situation. Identify yourself by speaking in a calm, appeasing tone. Back away slowly, preferably in the direction you came. Walk, don’t run, and keep your eye on the bear so you can see how it will react.
Should you yell at a bear?
Identify yourself by talking calmly so the bear knows you are a human and not a prey animal. Remain still; stand your ground but slowly wave your arms. Continue to talk to the bear in low tones; this will help you stay calmer, and it won’t be threatening to the bear. A scream or sudden movement may trigger an attack.
What smells do bears hate?
Bears also dislike the strong scent of pine-based cleaners, but avoid using anything with a fresh, lemony or fruity smell. And never mix bleach and ammonia; the combination produces fumes that can be deadly to both people and bears.
Why do you play dead with brown bear?
Play dead: If the brown bear continues to charge at you, play dead. Grizzlies attack when they feel surprised or threatened, so they tend to stop attacking when there’s no longer a threat.
What to do if a grizzly bear is outside your tent?

What to do if you see a bear near your house?
Stay Calm: If you see a bear and it hasn’t seen you, leave the area calmly. Talk or make noise while moving away to help it discover your presence. Choose a route that will not intersect with the bear if it is moving. Get Back: If you have surprised a bear, slowly back away while talking softly.
How do you scare away a bear?

Do bears eat humans?

What is the saying when you see a bear?
Don’t yell, that will be perceived as a threat. To deal with an approaching bear, calmly say, ” Hey bear, I’m moving away now,” Zimmer said, “and back away from it.” If a grizzly keeps approaching, you would want to have your bear spray ready to go. Once the bear is about 25 feet away, fire for a second or two.
Can bears smell period blood?
The question whether menstruating women attract bears has not been completely answered (Byrd 1988). However, there is no evidence that bears are overly attracted to menstrual odors more than any other odor and there is no statistical evidence that known bear attacks have been related to menstruation (Byrd 1988).
Are bears attracted to human urine?
Answer: Pee, by any other name, still smells the same, and bears, lions, and other predators are interested in anything that smells interesting. They say human urine deters nosey bears.
Does fire scare away bears?
Campfires, as warm, cozy, and safe as they make us feel, will not deter bears. But loud, off-key singing around a campfire will. The fact is, bears don’t want an encounter with us any more than we want one with them. And noise is the best deterrent.
