Large predators

When traveling in the wild special hazards are major predators. In different regions of the world they are different, not everywhere they are, as such, in many places their number is minimal. But that is no reason to dump them off! After all, one angry bear or a lynx would be enough to kill a man. Because in the wild, we are not always top the food chain.

Bear

Special danger to human are: brown, black and white bears, tigers, bobcats, panthers, jaguars, lions, wolves, various species of crocodiles. How could protect themselves from attack so dangerous fauna? Behavioral strategy when dealing with predators is different. If the predators are hungry and set aggressive - the only salvation is not close to them, but on the contrary, seeing traces of the beast, try as quickly as possible to leave the dangerous area.

This is particularly true of bears. If you inadvertently came too close and the bear decided to attack - you can save only a powerful firearms. If you do not have it - can only pray. Escape from the bear is extremely difficult, despite the heavy body, it is very fast runs. It is useless to seek safety in the trees there, he also easily climb. Salvation could be only a vast lake, or the rapid river. If you have time to reach them and to swim, the bear is unlikely to haunt you in the water, although he is not afraid of water.

From predators felines also have to stay away. They move faster than the bears. But few of them climb the trees. So, if you manage to climb higher, you can simply sit out of the same lion, waiting until he was tired of standing under a tree, in the expectation that you will go down to him directly on the dining table. Again, stupidly running away - is meaningless. If there are no firearms, and the predator moves on you, you can try to crush his authority. Stand up straight, look at him wide-open eyes, to a point between the eyes, yelling, whistling, waving his arms. There is a chance that the lion, tiger, panther, etc., decide that you are unknown and more dangerous predator than themselves and Retiro.

If predators are not hungry and are in their habitat, we can not disturb them. They will defend their territory and offspring. And this is no less motivators for them than hunted. If you see along the way vacationers predators or bear den - walk through this place tenth road. But do not run, and move away slowly, gradually, polubokom or face-to predators. When you turn away back - they can attack.

An entirely different strategy for protection from predators in the camp, when you do not bump into an animal, but he himself claimed on your lot, maybe the smell of cooking food. In this case, the universal protection - fire! A burning branch, or specially prepared torch can scare off any predator. All animals terribly afraid of fire. So, in the camp, try to keep the fire all night.
