Tip 041: Live through a Grizzly Encounter
If a grizzly’s mauling you, cuss yourself for getting in that fix. But do it quietly, because you’re supposed to be playing dead, and corpses don’t talk. The griz probably doesn’t want to eat you, but you’ve interrupted her routine (it’s most likely a female protecting cubs). And now you’re going to have to pay.
TAKE YOUR MAULING The best thing you can do to avoid injury or death is to shield yourself by going face-down on the ground with your backpack (let’s hope you’re wearing one) protecting your back. Cover your head and neck with your hands and play dead; it’s your best chance of not becoming dead for real.
KEEP QUIET Expect to be batted around, perhaps bitten a few times, and maybe clawed. Stay quiet if you can, which is a tall order when a bear has one of your body parts in her mouth.
WAIT IT OUT When the bear decides you are no longer a threat or an annoyance, she’ll probably huff and wander away. Stay still until she’s long gone.
