Picture this: you're out hiking in the bush in one of Manitobas beautiful parks, and seemingly out of nowhere, you run into a black bear! Do you:
Turn and run like your pants are on fire.
Quickly get something like a tree in between you and the animal.
Stand your ground, or back away slowly, while making yourself look as big as possible.
Believe it or not, I actually got that question wrong...which makes me pretty thankful I haven't run into any bears on my adventures. That being said, I recommend you check out an article about what to do when you encounter the various wildlife we have up here in Canada. Who knows...it may just save your life someday!
