Experts asked for a way to survive a meeting with a bear
When you find a bear, you can't run and look into its eyes, while you can scare a predator with a scream, said the Trans-Baikal Territory Ministry of Natural Resources.
The department noted that running away from a predator is "useless" and can only lead to persecution on his part. Remaining in place, the predator should be frightened by the crying or noise of metal objects. At the same time, experts have also advised to raise your hands: this way you can make it clear to the animal that you are stronger than him. Not to provoke an attack, you cannot look into a predator's eyes and show his teeth, the ministry added.
On vacation in the woods, experts advised to look closely in front of the parking lot and move noisily and in company to avoid a collision with a point-blank predator. It's also important not to leave food behind in the woods and settlements: it attracts a predator.
In early October in Transbaikalia, after a bear attack, a woman died. His body was found in a forest 100 km from the village of Terephen. As noted by the regional Ministry of Natural Resources, with the advent of autumn, bears began to go to settlements more often due to the aggravated sense of hunger.
