Hope this will be useful to someone and saves someones life in emergency. We would request you to share this page with your family and friends. If we get the support and maximum shares and comments then we would go to central education board to add ” How to defend against animal attacks” as a lesson in every class, so that every student will be aware of it and will be useful to him atleast once in a life.

Some General Points to which the animal fear and go away:

  • Shouting loud
  • Running zigzagly
  • Acting dead
  • Running opposite to animal
  • Fire
  • Covering the face of animal with cloth
  • Climbing trees
  • Pepper Spray on animals (Yes it works on animals as well)

These are few techniques. But these work for few animals, we should be aware of what works for which animal and how to escape from the situation. Its not so easy for a person to think wisely who is infront of a cruel animal and act fast coz as per the doctors the brain of such person goes blank due to shock, so the persons who are with them should act better.

If someone who are throwing stones during the Delhi zoo incident would have the knowledge that tiger gets afraid of fire and lit a shirt and thrown infront of tiger, they may have saved his life.

Lets learn share and spread the awareness , so that such incidents doesn’t take place in future. Insha Allah.

Delhi Zoo white tiger attack on student footage:

Animal What to do when Attacks? How to AVOID attack & FIRST AID
Bear


1. Pepper spray is best defence.


2. Play DEAD


3. Use whatever you have – a walking stick, bicycle, anything – and keep it between you and the bear.


4. If there are two or more of you, it’s important that everybody stays together.


5. If all of the above fails, gang up and fight as hard as you can, kicking and screaming. Use knives or tree branches as clubs if you can.

1. If you do meet a bear on a trail, immediately say something calmly so it can tell you’re not a threat.


2. If the bear doesn’t run off, work out which way you should go so that it can get by.


3. Keep talking and pass the bear at a distance at least equal to that which separated you when you first met it.


4. Hike in groups and make some noise, so you don’t surprise them.

Tigers
1. At first keep quiet and still. Tigers are more likely to spot you if you move. Wait until the tiger has gone before making your way to safety.

2. Hide if a tiger is stalking you. If possible, get into a hiding place such as a vehicle, a hut, or a narrow space between rocks, where the tiger cannot reach you

3. Try to out-think the tiger if it pounces. If a tiger is leaping through the air at you, figure out where it will land and run to one side heading for any rocks, trees, or other shelter.

4. Avoid approaching cubs, as mother tigers can be defensive to their young.

5. If attacked, use a big stick or stone to fight. Be aggressive and loud as you can. Tigers do not like to hunt animals that can fight back, and are very aggressive.

6 .Put your hands Up and stand at a height place. Because Tiger wont attack on the animals look bigger than itself. As you put your hands up you look bigger than the tiger so it wont attack.

7. Put Fire

1. Don’t pet, feed, or even go near a tiger cub or den.

2. Also, don’t even bother trying to go near a tiger unless you are a trained professional. People die every year from trying to get closer to large wild animals.

3. Avoid traveling alone in tiger prone areas.

4. Do not sneeze while a tiger is near to you!

5. No fast movements

Elephant

1. Throw a decoy. If you’re running and the elephant is drawing nearer, throw a jacket, hat, bag or branch a distance away from you. This might serve as enough of a distraction for the elephant to attack it instead of you

2. Be noisy. It might be possible to shoo off the elephant by making loud noise if there is some distance between you and the charging elephant.

3. Do not show your back to the elephant. Do not turn or run.Running encourages chasing.

4. If you must run, try to do it in a way that deceives the elephant. A charging elephant can run much faster than you but if you zig-zag, you might be able to confuse it. Elephants find it difficult to change directions due to their bulky size.

5. Climb. Elephants can’t climb, obviously. And provided you find a sturdy enough tree of good height.

6. Play dead. It’s not an optimal choice and you are extremely exposed if the elephant decides to stomp on you, either deliberately or unwittingly

1. If you are with a guide, keeper or other responsible person, listen to what he or she says to do and obey!

2. Try not to anger any elephant. Stay very still and don’t stare at its eyes.

3. If you are in an enclosed space with an elephant, such as at a zoo, wildlife park or similar, be sure you know all of the safety protocols for such an activity and stay near exit points at all times.

4. In some cases, rangers or guides shoot near (rather than at) charging elephants, to get them to turn around.

5. Try to stay calm at all times. While it’s terrifying to have a large, wild beast bearing down on you, keeping a clear head may be what saves you.

Lion

1. See if the lion is not interested at all. In fact, most lions will choose to run when confronted by a human, especially if you show any signs of being scrawny, as they prefer to avoid confrontation with non-typical prey species.

2. Above all, do not run. Running around any animal that hunts for a living will incite its prey chasing mechanism faster than you can blink. It will be difficult but hold your ground and breathe steadily.

3. Talk in a calm and firm voice to the lion. You can tell it anything you like really, provided it’s calm and firm. After all,lions don’t know a single human language, so it’s all down to body and facial signals and a steady voice.

4. Try to make yourself appear larger than you really are. Lions are fairly lazy on the whole and if you look like a challenge,the chances are that the lion will treat you as such and be less inclined to attack. Things that might help increase your physical size appearance include:

 Raising your hands above your head and keeping them there.

 Pitching your jacket between your raised hands to look like a sail, and hopefully a bigger you

 Widening your stance gently and not so much as to overbalance.

5. Retreat very slowly backwards, continuing to face the lion. As you walk backwards, maintain eye contact. Never turn your back; this just makes it really easy for the lion to see a clear leaping space without eye contact to disarm him.

6.Clap, shout, and wave your arms. This isn’t normal prey behavior, so this will confuse it, and give the lion the illusion that you are one noisy nuisance that needs to be avoided.

7. Ready yourself for an attack. Most of the time a first and possibly even later charges are only a warning, but not always. Listen for a deep growling roar just prior to a charge. This means that you need to be prepared to do whatever you can to fight off the lion.

1. If you see a lion with baby cubs, know that they are extra protective and should be given lots of space.

2. Be very cautious at night time. Lions are not as afraid of humans at nighttime.

3. Never trek in lion country without an experienced guide.

4. If you see a wild lion, do not approach it, ever. You can get closeups through your camera lens.

5. Lions are powerful, beautiful animals. Take all necessary precautions to stay out of their way and let them live as nature intended. Especially as a tourist or visitor to Africa, don’t do stupid things like walking alone or unaided in lion country, and going where you haven’t a clue what’s going on.

6. Obey all the rules in safari parks. The rules are there to protect you; disobey them at your own risk.

7. This is their territory, not yours. Wild animals are always best observed from a distance. We use our equipment to get close up, not our bodies.

Dog / Fox

1. Try to remain calm. If you panic, you may appear threatening to the dog and cause it to become more aggressive. Shout for help, or if you are with someone, get them to get help as soon as possible.

2. Stand still or walk at a constant slow pace but do not run. Running away will provoke the dog to chase you and could lead to an attack.

3. Do not use a part of your body, such as an arm or a leg, to distance yourself from the dog. The dog may see a waving arm as a target and snap at you.

4. If a dog bites, do not pull away as that will tear the skin.If you cannot easily escape from its grasp.

1. Be aware of dogs in your area, especially those that are not walked on leads. If necessary, change your route to avoid them.

2. Always keep a safe distance between you and a dog, even on a lead.And do not approach a dog without the owner’s permission.

3. If you want to approach a dog, it is best to allow the dog to smell your scent. If you approach with your hands, do so with your palms up. Never show the dog a closed fist or put your hand behind your back.

Bull
1. Run away and quickly climb or jump over the nearest fence, gate or even up a sturdy tree. Bulls can outrun people so make sure your escape route is a short one.

2. The best thing you could do is if there’s no place to hide or if you’re out in the middle of a pasture, to either side-step the bull and run in the opposite direction, or face the bull, yell (or scream) as loud as you can and give the bull the hardest hit across the face or muzzle as you possibly can give with the weapon in your hand.

3.If none of this can be had, throw the back-pack off your back as you go (if you have one), or even your shirt or jacket if you are fast enough to take it off.

1. If you see a bull in a pasture or field with cows, avoid going in the field at all costs. This is just plain common sense.

2. If you absolutely must to go through the field be aware that a bull may see you as a threat and warn you to keep away. Any bull that does growling, head-shaking and pawing the earth, is one to avoid.

3. If you absolutely have to go in the same corral with a bull, pack a weapon with you which is thick stick that won’t break on impact, an axe handle, a one- to two-foot long piece of PVC pipe.

4. Also keep close to the fence to make your escape that much easier.

Snakes
1. Stay calm if the snake loops around you. If you relax, it may not attempt to constrict you– in fact, it may just be curious. Struggling, however, prompts the snake to squeeze.

2. Wrap your non-dominant arm around your ribs for stability and protection.

3. Take slow, shallow breaths as the snake uses breathing as a cue for constriction.

4. Grab the snake’s head with your free hand, and pull it backwards to unwind the coil.

5. Fend off the snake with your stick if it approaches.

1. Avoid an encounter by keeping alert for snakes.

2. Carry Sticks or long rods if you are going to areas where snakes seen frequently.

3. Wear protective clothing such as long pants, tall hiking boots, long sleeves, and gloves when going bushy areas.

DO NOTS when Snake Bites:

 Do not wash the wound, no matter the circumstances.

 Do not put any ice or cold substance on the bite

 Do not use an electrical stimulus anti-venom kit.

 Do not administer antivenin (anti-venom) yourself.

And For shallow venomous bite wounds, let the initial wound naturally bleed out.

Shark
1. Avoid lying on the surface in areas frequented by sharks. In profile, you will look like a seal or other tasty prey. Try to keep vertical in the water.

2. Stay calm if you see a shark. Move slowly towards shore and keep your head above water. Excessive splashing or activity attracts sharks.

3. Remain still if you feel the shark brush against you. Sharks often investigate unknown objects by nosing them, then swimming away.

4. Signal for help above water by waving your hands, shouting, etc. You’ll want to be extracted from your situation if you’re surrounded by a swarm of sharks.

5. Fight back if the shark bites you. Punch and scratch at the eyes and gills. The shark will often let go.

1. Take measures while going swimming without safety measures in seas.

2. Never provoke a shark or intentionally put yourself in a position in which you are likely to be attacked.

3. Remember to breathe as you fight. You need adequate oxygen to effectively defend against an attack and to make a quick getaway and retreat to safety.

4. Be aware of your surroundings. Sharks usually hunt at drop-offs or near banks. if you see fish continuously jumping out of the water it probably means there is a predator around, which may be a shark.

5. Don’t wear bright jewelry or watches. It attracts sharks. Instead, choose dark, plain colors.

Crocodile
1. Go for the eyes. The most vulnerable part of a crocodile’s or alligator’s body is its eyes. Try to hit or poke the eyes with whatever you have handy: an oar, a stick, or a knife. Even your hands can be effective weapons if you can hit the animal’s eyes.

2. Go for the nostrils or ears. While not as sensitive as the eyes, the nostrils and ears can be effectively attacked. A hard blow or a cut to either of these areas may cause the animal to release you.



3. Go for the palatal valve. Crocodilians have a flap of tissue behind the tongue. If your arm or leg is stuck in a crocodile’s mouth, you may be able to pry this valve down. Water will then flow into the crocodile’s throat, and animal will most likely let you go. Hard strikes to this valve may also cause the animal to release you.

1. Stay away from infested waters.

2. Be aware of your surroundings.

3. Stay at least fifteen feet away from alligators or crocodiles.

4. Avoid surprising the animals.

Cheetah
1. If you see a Cheetah that doesn’t see you, don’t get its attention. If you do, it could try to attack you.

2. If the Cheetah spots you, maintain eye contact. Whilst maintaining eye contact, back away slowly, as a cheetah will probably be afraid of you if it spots you.

3. Back away slowly and DO NOT run! If you run, it will instinctively chase you and you could be bruised in seconds.

4. Hold your ground if needs be. If the Cheetah charges you, hold your ground, don’t panic, and put your hands above your head and clap and shout. This should scare it away.

5. Fight back if you have to. The cheetah is more fast than strong unlike other big cats such as the lion or the tiger, give it a big belt on the face with whatever you have if you can!

1. Obey all the rules in safari parks. The rules are there to protect you; disobey them at your own risk.

2. Do not walk alone on the African plains.

3. Remember that cheetahs are generally non-violent towards humans, so don’t worry if you happen to see one- enjoy the chance!

4. Never ever approach a wild cheetah, you can get a close up view to them through your lens. Never approach Cheetah cubs either as mothers can be extremely defensive towards their young.

5. Take more care at night time. Cheetahs won’t be as afraid of you then.

Scorpion

1. Be careful when camping or during other outdoor activities to make sure that a scorpion has not made
home in your clothes, shoes or sleeping bags.

2. Scorpions glow brightly under UV light (black light).

3. Scorpions are hard to kill off. If you suspect your house has scorpions, call a professional exterminator.

4. Eliminating their food source (other insects) can help.

5. Few people die from scorpion stings, even the sting of the bark scorpion. Scorpion stings are most dangerous to the very young and the very old. Pets are also at risk.

1. Common symptoms of a scorpion sting are a tingling or burning at the sting site, numbness, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, blurry vision, or seizures. In some rare cases, pancreatitis – a painful inflammation of the pancreas – may occur. Some symptoms of pancreatitis are abdominal pain, chills, fever, sweating, and nausea. Onset of symptoms is usually quite rapid and can last for between 24 to 48 hours.


Wild animal attacks are extremely rare. However, there are several techniques to help you survive attacks from several species of wildlife.

1. Know your area. Use a field guide and information from the local parks department to find out what wildlife lives in the area, and if
any attacks have been recorded.

2. Bring supplies. Bells, pepper spray, a knife, a snake stick and extra clothing can help you fend off attacks.

Safety measures who visits ZOO or Wild Safaris.

We all know the things which we Should/Do Not Do when we go to ZOO or near animals. Still we see Delhi incidents which tell us that we do not follow. Lets
Co-operate together and share to save atleast one life.

1. Visitor should not disturb any exhibit animals by any means, including an attempt to pet, feed, handle or trap exhibit animals unless overseen by a Zoo
staff member.

2. No visitor shall go over, under, between or otherwise cross any guardrail, fence, moat, wall or other safety barrier, or seat, stand or hold children
over such barriers.

3. No visitor shall throw or toss rocks, trash or other articles into exhibit areas.

4. No Pets: Pets of any kind are not allowed on Zoo grounds. Pets must not be left in parked vehicles, as the temperature within vehicles can reach lethal
levels. Zoo Police are authorized to enter vehicles parked on Zoo grounds to rescue pets that may be in danger of dehydration and/or heat prostration.
(Service dogs are permitted, as are miniature horses trained to do work for people with disabilities if housebroken and under the owner’s control.)

5. No Balloons: Balloons are not allowed on Zoo grounds, as they present a potential choking hazard to the animals.

6. No Loud Music: Visitors may not play loud music within the park, as it may disturb the animals as well as other visitors. Use of headphones to listen to
music is encouraged, however visitors should be aware of directions that may be provided by Zoo staff and police.
