How do you get away from bears if start chasing you?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75900120


You don't run. You're supposed to put your arms out and stand as tall as you can so you look YUGE.

This bear though, I think you just kneel for this one and pray.
 Quoting: Cat in Hat


I think I read this in the Herter's Alaskan Guide's Manual:

Run downhill. Bears are fast, but they cannot run downhill as fast as a human. They weigh so much that they risk fractures running down a steep slope.

However, for brown bears, such as the one pictured, climbing a tree (BIG tree!) is best.

Many Alaskans carry a 12 gauge pump with slugs. Best close range bear medicine.

I would not travel bear country without a dog to keep watch while I was sleeping.

Having said that, I have been bear hunting a few times, but only for the smaller, less dangerous black bears. Never got one.

Surely one of them could have escaped whilst the other was feeding the monster.

Our caveman ancestors had to take on such monsters with stone tipped spears. A few dogs to keep the bear busy would help.

As for the silly animal rights commenter: YES, we are predators. Its in our genes. Our ancestors did not survive the ice ages eating roots and berries. The evidence in the caves is conclusive.

Re: This is a huge bear WTF!! Killed 2 men
Assess the situation. Are you dealing with a black bear or a grizzly? Are there cubs involved? Are there climbable trees nearby (and do you have sufficient time to climb them)?

Do Not Run. You can't outrun a bear so don't even try. Despite rumours to the contrary, black and grizzly bears can outrun a human on ANY terrain, uphill or down. People will tell you that you should run downhill when chased by a grizzly. This is simply a myth - don't try it!

Try to retreat slowly. Back up slowly and try to put more space between you and the bear. Talk calmly so that it can identify you as human, and slowly back up. Keep your backpack on as it can provide protection if necessary. Don't make direct eye contact, but keep a close look at the bear as you back away.

Climb a tree if available. If you have enough time, and the bear continues to move closer, take advantage of a tall tree to climb. Remember, black bears are strong climbers as well. Grizzlies have also climbed short distances up trees after people. You want to get at least 10 m (33 feet) high to reduce the chance of being pulled out of the tree. Even though some bears can come up the tree after you, the hope is that they will feel less threatened, and thus less likely to chase you up the tree.

If the bear charges you. Bears will often bluff charge before attacking. This is designed to allow enemies to back down before the bear needs to actually make contact. It evolved as a way to prevent encounters with enemies and it may provide you with an opportunity to back away.

Use your pepper spray. This is a last resort. Pepper spray is only good at very close range (5 m or 15 ft). Wind will reduce this effective range even farther (and may blow the spray back into your face). If the bear approaches within this range, point the spray at its eyes and discharge the contents. Hopefully, this will either disorient the bear to allow you to escape, or at the very least deter it from attacking. Once you have partially discharged a canister of bear spray it should be discarded. While the spray may deter attacks, the smell of pepper can act as an attractant.

Black Bear. If a black bear (or any bear that is stalking you) makes contact. If the attack escalates and a black bear (or any bear that appears to have been stalking you) physically contacts you, fight back with anything that is available to you. Black bears tend to be more timid than grizzlies and fighting back may scare the bear off. In addition, if a bear is stalking you than you are in a predatory situation and fighting back is your only option. This also applies to any attack at night as these may also be considered predatory in nature.

If a grizzly makes contact. As above, if you believe the bear to be stalking you, fight back with everything you have. In general though, playing dead in a daytime grizzly encounter tends to reduce the level of injury sustained by most attack victims. Many grizzly attacks are defensive in nature, and playing dead may show the bear that you are not a threat. Keep your backpack on as it will provide added protection. The best position is to lie on your side in a fetal position. Bring your legs up to your chest and bury your head into your legs. Wrap your arms around your legs and hold on tight. You may also lie on your stomach, backpack on, and place your hands behind your neck to protect that vulnerable area. Do not play dead until the last moment. Staying on your feet may allow you to dodge, or divert an attack.

After the attack. Once the attack has ended, remain patient. After a few minutes, try to determine if the bear is still in the area. If the bear has moved on, you should make your way towards assistance as quickly as possible.

Remember that a bear has a resting heart rate of 6-8 beats per minute. If you have to shoot one in a survival situation, aim for the quickest path to the cranial vault, ear canal, eyes, throat, otherwise expect a long agonizing death while the bear rages on you as he bleeds out.
Recommended bear country pistol calibers, 500SW, 44 mag, 10mm auto. Alternate penetrator and expanding bullets. Rifles should be of sufficient caliber as well, 300 mag, 338 win mag, 338 Lapua. Good luck.

No. I think the bear who killed them is in this photo.
