Bear Attack – What to Do and How to Survive It?

Perhaps, in our area, this question is not the most relevant, but for general development and travel lovers, it will be very relevant. And the approach of the promised end of the world is also worth meeting fully armed. Therefore, let’s talk about the attack, these tips will come in handy when meeting other wild animals.

Scare the Bear

The easiest way to avoid trouble is to get away from meeting a wild beast, pretend that you don’t see each other, and quietly go about your important business. This is not always possible, and therefore you can go the other way. You need to try to scare off the predator. It is better to show your physical strength. For example, start yelling loudly, you can even throw branches or stones, wave your arms. The main thing is to show that you are a big noisy something, which means strong and dangerous, that is, inedible and even predatory.


The bear is a dexterous and fast creature. If it was not possible to scare him, there is only one way – up. It is better to choose a tree that is strong, stable, and, most importantly, tall. Bears know how to climb trees, but young individuals do it well and willingly. But large adults, most likely, do not dare to overcome 4-6 meters vertically.

Do not be Heroic

Having a weapon in your hands greatly changes your perception of the world. A person often becomes self-confident. In the case of a bear, edged weapons will not help you, and firearms may not be enough either. Of course, if we are not talking about northern barbarians or elusive ninjas, they will not tear a bear with their bare hands. We need to remember that the bear’s bones are strong, the skin is thick, and therefore there is no heroism – it is better to use your ax knives to accelerate climbing a tree.

Time is Life

If you cannot teleport instantly or just climb a tree due to the lack of it, use any available means. Even small trees or bushes are quite suitable for knocking the beast off the straight path, not letting him fall over with acceleration. Take cover behind whatever you can, look out for a retreat path, and, most importantly, shout, make noise. Perhaps the bear will get bored with such a nimble prey, or a group of hunters with heavy weapons will pass by.

Pretend to be a Corpse

If the collision could not be avoided, then there are two options. First, the bear won. In this case, you can relax, all the worst is already behind, there is eternal peace and pies for friends ahead. If, after the attack, it was possible to regain consciousness, then there is a completely different conversation.

This means that the bear was not too hungry, he will try to hide the carcass for later. The main thing, in this case, is not to dissuade the bear in his delusion, with terrible force pretend to be a lifeless carcass. Let him dig in the “cold corpse” and leave. Then all that remains is to rise from a shallow “grave” and go home.
