There are Two Types of Bear Attacks:
Provoked Bear Attack:
You have done something that has provoked the bear. Quite often it's not clear to the person what they have done to provoke the bear until after the attack.
It is important that you act passively, humble your posture and do not look directly at the bear. Always keep the bear in sight.
Lie down on the ground in the prone position, i.e. play dead, or give up the football, these are both signs of submission to the bear and shows the bear that you are no longer a threat to them.
Never yell at the bear or throw things at the bear, these are obvious signs of aggression towards the bear.
Predatory Bear Attack:
The bear is hunting or stalking you! You are being treated as potential offensive threat. YOU MUST PLAY DEAD IF THE BEAR CONSIDERS YOU A THREAT!
You cannot defend yourself or act aggressively towards the bear. Punt the ball or turn it over on downs!
Don't try to appear dominant, or attempt to frighten the bear. You can yell,scream, shout,wave your arms,even jump up and down. But it's futile to resist,just hold your jacket over jacket/shirt over your head and concentrate your efforts on the final whistle.
