If you encounter a bear - do not turn and run, they will chase you down. You're supposed to make yourself big, wave your hands in the air and speak calmly. If the bear charges, hold your ground, as most of the time it will just be a fake out.

If you encounter a moose, on the other hand, turn and RUN.

The above is the helpful advice posted by the National Park service along the hiking trails. And no, we did not have to put it to use (yet).
