INTERNeX Canada: How to scape from a bear!

In Canada, there are approximately 25,000 grizzly bears occupying British Columbia, Ontario, Alberta, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, Nuvanut, and the northern part of Manitoba.

If you should happen to run into a bear or you find yourself face to face with a bear, do you know what to do? Read on, because here are some interesting tips!

  1.  First of all, keep calm! Most of bears try to avoid people, so you should not be afraid.
  2.  If the bear doesn’t seem dangerous or agressive and is far away, just make as much noise as you can. You’ll let him/her know your presence: talk loudly, make noise,etc. (but don’t whistle)
  3.  Keep your distance, but if the bear is closer, stop and  don’t panic! Remain calm and try to look as large as possible. Then, try to back slowly and speak softly.Beer deterrent
  4.  Carry bear spray! Yeah, it sounds funny, but it actually exists. It’s a special pepper spray and is an invaluable deterrent!! (Take care, it’s a good deterrent, but the scent of its resin can actually attract bears)

Just watch this funny video, it’ll help you a lot !

P.S. Just keep in mind guys: Do not feed bears guys! It’s illegal in all of Canadian and USA National parks, and bears will associate humans with easy food!

Best,

Mercedes
