What to do if you encounter a bear:

–Make certain you have bear pepper spray at the ready and know how to use it.
–Always maintain a safe distance from bears.
–Stay calm.
–Immediately pick up small children and stay in a group.
–Behave in a non-threatening manner.
–Speak softly.
–Do NOT make eye contact.
–Throw a backpack or other object (like a hat or gloves) on the ground as you move away to distract the animal’s attention.
–Slowly back away, if possible. Keep a distance of at least 100 yards.
–Do not run from a bear. Running may trigger a natural predator-prey attack response and a grizzly can easily outrun the world’s fastest human.
–Don’t climb a tree unless you are sure you can get at least 10′ from the ground before the bear reaches you. Many experts recommend against climbing trees in most situations.
–Do not attempt to frighten away or haze a grizzly bear that is near or feeding on a carcass.
