The National Park Service Issues a Reminder Not to Push Your Slow Friend Down to Save Yourself from a Bear

 So you’re visiting one of our country’s fine national parks and . . . uh oh! . . . you find yourself face to face with a bear?  How do you escape?

Well, the National Park Service would like to remind you what NOT to do.

They put up a Facebook post yesterday on their official page reminding people if they encounter a bear, quote, “Please don’t push your slower friends down in attempts of saving yourself.”

The advice is mixed in with other tips like “don’t run” and “don’t climb a tree.”

So if you can’t run, climb a tree, OR sacrifice your friends, what DO you do?  Stay calm, slowly move away, and walk sideways while you keep eye contact with the bear . . . they find all that non-threatening.
