HOW TO SAVE YOUR HIDE: WHEN ANIMALS ATTACK .....YOU!
* BIG CATS *
THEIR TURF:
Populations are on the rise: Mountaine lions roam in a hilly terrain in the West; panthers hae been found in Florida.
IF YOU SPOT ONE:
Back away slowly. It it charges, top and make yourself look as big and scary as possible. Fan out a jacket, wave your arms, yell, shout and throw rocks.
IF IT ATTACKS:
Fight back. Your best shot at escape is convincing the cat that you're the champion. Keep at it, and it should get the point pretty quickly.


* JELLY FISH *
THEIR TURF:
The surf Jellies float around the ocean hoping to collide with some unlucky fish (otherwise known as dinner). Then their stinging cells fire toxins into the potential prey.
IF YOU SPOT ONE:
If you see one, swim away. If you're particularly worried about a jelly run-in, rub on SafeSea, a sunbblock that may neutralize the stinging mechanisms.
IF IT ATTACKS:
There's no need to pee on the sting. Rinse it with salt water (fresh water makes pain worse). Ask a lifeguard for a bottle of vinegar, it breaks down venom.


* SHARKS *
THEIR TURF:
All over the world, though they prefer tropical waters (and this year especially those surrounding Florida!) to cool ones.
IF YOU SPOT ONE:
(Pretend to) be calm and get out of the water as soon as you can . Then yell your head off to alert other swimmers.
IF IT ATTACKS:
Try poking a charging shark in the eyes and gills. If it bites, resist the urge to pull away, it could cause more severe injurijes. Keep fighting 'till it gives up or help arrives.


* POISONOUS SNAKES *
THEIR TURF:
Venomous snakes live in every U.S. state except Hawaii, but they're most common in desert areas and near water in the Southeast.
IF YOU SPOT ONE:
Carefully move away. Don't scream. Unless you step on a snakes, kick it or try to pick it up, it's unlikely to bite. Plus, about a third of venomous snakes shoot blanks.
IT IT ATTACKS:
Stay calm and still -- the more you move, the faster any toxins will circulate in your bloodstream.


* FIRE ANTS *
THEIR TURF:
Sunny, open spaces mainly in the South, including Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.
IF YOU SPOT ONE:
Quickly brush them off you and move - fast. You may be standing on a mound, and if you are, there's a whole ant army on its way. Red scare!
IF IT ATTACKS:
There are no proven remedies for fire ant pustules, but apply cortisone cream and pop an anthistamine. Head to the ER if you have severe reaction.


* BEARS *
THEIR TURF:
Black bears live in wooded areas all over the country. Watch out fr grizzlies in Alaska and the Northern Rockies.
IF YOU SPOT ONE:
Back up slowly -- don't run or the bear may chase. Establish that you're HUMAN! by waving your arms and speaking loudly it it charges, drop to the ground.
IF IT ATTACKS:
Play dead. Curl into a fetal position to protect you organs,a nd clasp hand behind your neck. When you're srue it's gone, get the hell out of there.
