Do NOT run from a bear!! It will chase you; you start to run and its natural instincts then see you as prey. Back away slowly, avoid direct eye contact, and if all else fails (ie the bear charges you) lie face-down on the ground and play dead, with you hands clasped behind your neck. You want to do everything possible to not appear as a threat to that bear.
