Although last week, I saw a big brother of the newest Swiss citizen in Siberia and I did not behave like this:
- Stop, stay calm and quiet, and make no sudden moves.
- Stand your ground - do not turn your back on the bear - sometimes a bear will bluff charge several times.
- Back away slowly, speaking in a calming, monotone voice - you want to show the bear that you are being submissive and want to get out of "It’s" territory. Do not turn your back.
- Keep a cool head - try to stay calm, do not yell or scream.
Enough about me and back to the Swiss bear. Why did it choose the Swiss National Park? Almost everything that makes any fun is prohibited there:
Do not leave the marked trails
No dogs, not even on a lead
No winter sports, nor cycling
Do not remove anything
No overnight stays, not even in the parking areas
