**In Harm's Way **
If you spot a grizzly at a distance, keep out of sight and leave, walking downwind if possible. If the bear has seen you, move away upwind so that your scent drifts toward it. In an encounter, back away slowly, talking in a quiet voice. If it follows, drop an item from your pockets or pack (not food!) to deflect its attention, but keep your pack on for protection. Do not crouch down or make eye contact, which the bear may interpret as aggressive behavior.
