Alberta Fish and Wildlife offered a few tips for people to help avoid conflict with bears:

• Do not run. Stay calm. Stay with your group and keep children close. Assess the situation.

• Look around. If you see cubs or an animal carcass, the bear will want to protect them. If you see either, back away from them.

• Prepare to use your bearspray.

• Back out. Leave the area the way that you came. Keep your eye on the bear without staring at it aggressively.

• Watch for a place to hide. As you back away, seek out a place of safety, such as a car or building.

• Speak to the bear in a soft, low voice. Let the bear know that you are human and not a prey animal.

• Use your noisemaker and prepare to defend yourself with bear spray.
