Read an Excerpt

¿Big carnivores are probably best faced. Running away will do you no good since they can easily outrun you and this is exactly what prey species do. Do something that a prey species would not do, like throwing rocks or running at the animal shouting and brandishing a big stick. The predator will then be so surprised and confused that it will probably retreat.¿
