Retreat from wild animals animal slowly.

Use common sense and avoid all animals you may come across in the wild by keeping clear and moving away as soon as you spot them, even if they are at a distance.

The Boy Scouts recommend the following tactic when coming in close contact with bears, wolves, coyotes, and cougars: face the animal and slowly back away from it. Don’t play dead, run, or approach the animal. If you’re cornered, make yourself as big as possible. Spread out your arms and make a lot of noise. If this still doesn’t work, throw anything you can find at the animal. Carry spray mace and use it as a last resort defense.

If this is unsuccessful and the animal attacks, block its mouth with your non-dominant arm and smash the heel of your hand into its snout or hit it in the eyes. If you can temporarily disable the animal, run and find a tree or safe place to hide in before you attempt first aid.
