In this March 21, 2018, photo, Be Bear Aware Campaign Director Chuck Bartlebaugh demonstrates how to use bear spray during a training session in Missoula, Mont. Bartlebaugh said if people have time during a grizzly bear attack, they would ideally begin to spray when the bear is still 60 feet away. He suggests aiming slightly downward to create a cloud that meet the bear about 30 feet away. He also recommends using the larger, 7-second can and holding down the trigger until the bear diverts from its charge. (Perry Backus/Ravalli Republic via AP)
