What to do with an aggressive bear?
Of course the best is not to meet the bear at all. First of all, don’t panic before a bear starts to act aggressively. If it’s just looking at you, stand still. There is a chance it won’t even understand who you are and what you are going to do. If it starts walking toward you slowly, walk backward slowly. Bears rarely attack people. Most likely, it will back off once it realizes you are a human. However, if it acts aggressively, you should know that the weakest skill of this animal is its maneuverability.

Sooner or later, the animal will give up trying to catch you seeing that this food (you) is not worth its energy.
