on a trail or near a watering place, where you can face a herd of elephants or an excessively curious cougar.
Do not provoke a collision. Bears of northern forests often plow at the places of human settlement, checking tin cans and in the same way can go to your camp to find easy prey. Try to drive them away with noise; do not try to catch them. A bear easily kills a person, but a wounded deer is no less dangerous. All animals, if injured or have no escape route, are likely to be dangerous. Most wild animals try to escape. If you interfere with this, you force him to fight.
Crocodiles and alligators need to stay away if they are not very small, but in this case, make sure that there is no large one nearby. Any animal with large horns is capable of wounding you with its weapons before you take it out with yours. Deer males are especially aggressive during mating. Wolves can be heard more often than seen. Tales of enormous robber packs are obviously imaginative. The wolf may be curious and look at you from a great distance, but do not trust the absolutely reliable stories about how hunters were constantly pursued by packs of cruel angry wolves.
If you are seriously injured and unable to defend yourself, wolves can kill you. Hyenas also hunt in packs.

Small monkeys are much more common and pose a much greater immediate danger. Their teeth are very sharp..
