I want a cat like this and I don't even like cats.











Jack, a 15-pound orange-and-white cat, cat sits under a treed black bear in a backyard in West Milford, N.J., Sunday, June 4, 2006. When the bear climbed down, the cat chased it up another nearby tree. Neighbor Suzanne Giovanetti thought Jack was simply looking up at the bear, but soon realized the much larger animal was afraid of the hissing cat. The cat's owners called it away and the bear ran off. (AP Photo/Suzanne Giovanetti)

The cat showed dominance. If you are ever attacked by a bear growl, and open up your coat and put your arms straight out from your body to make yourself look bigger. Never just RUN from a bear, it will assume you are weaker and chase you down and eat you. If you do try to escape, try to slowly while not looking weak. Most of the time when I bear charges at you it is trying to assert it's dominance. 3/4's of the time it will stop it's charge if you hold your ground.

Great advice, Mr. BWillie007. Thanks.

Also, when a bear charges you, you can offer it a pickanick basket. 87% of the time, the bear is just looking for a pickanick basket.

So...what happens the other 1/4 of the time?

It'll probably rip your head off. If it's a black bear, once it attacks you and swipes at you, you are supposed to fight back with anything you can find. Stick, rocks, etc. You cannot outrun a bear, running from a bear will only make the bear want to eat you even more. If you encounter a Grizzly Bear and it actually doesn't stop it's charge and tries to attack you..your almost always screwed. They say to then lay in the fetal position motionless until it is done mauling you. Hopefully you will still be alive.

Or you could do what I do. Stay away from bears.


SPchief, Succesfully avoided being eaten by bears for over 24 years and counting.

thats a pretty funny story, I would shit myself if I ran into a bear somewhere...If I were out in the wilderness in bear country I would only go with a solid firearm

I heard that you should stand your ground and when the bear opens it's mouth you reach down it's throad all the way down until you get to it's tail, then grab hold and pull your hand out. You'll turn the bear inside out and he'll run the other way.

Another good tactic to use when entering bear country is to always travel with a slow friend.

But if he's inside out and running away, doesn't that mean that he's actually running toward you?

They will run in circles mainly, Mr. Rain Man. Because their eyes are now pointing inward. And, as they do this, you make your escape.

The difficulty, obviously, is that you will likely cross their path numerous times as they circle. And this, of course, is the source of the old trapper saying, "We all have our bears to cross."

No he'll be facing the other way ;)

Another excellent tactic when encountering a charging bear is to pick up a large stone or rock and pitch it to him.

The bear will instinctively strain to catch it. Then, you can make your getaway ... as long as you can strain the bear.

I just hang out with people who run slower, or push the other person down and run for help, you don't have to be faster than the bear, jsut faster than someone else in your party, seems simple to me!!
