If you come upon a stationary bear, move away slowly and sideways;
this allows you to keep an eye on the bear and avoid tripping.
Moving sideways is also non-threatening to bears.

1. Do NOT run, but if the bear follows, stop and hold your ground. Like dogs, they will chase fleeing animals.

2. Do NOT climb a tree. Both grizzlies and black bears can climb trees.⁣⁣

3. Do NOT push down a slower friend (even if you think the friendship has run its course).

I still am wondering about # 3
