Luckily, not all bear attacks are deadly. No two encounters or attacks are the same, but bears will typically behave in consistent manners. If you notice a bear becoming aggressive or agitated, it’s likely trying to scare and intimidate you.
What to do if a bear attacks you depends on the species. Black bears are typically skittish but mean business if they charge you. You should fight back and be as aggressive as possible to attempt to intimidate them.
