I've run into wild boars here in the USA while camping, if you let them charge before you can startle them - they are very scary!!

Good news is just like the Grizzly Bear - making as much noise and waving arms etc. to appear as large and loud as possible, will cause them to go look for easier prey.

Of course if the grizzly is a mom with cubs nearby - all bets are off!

Have a great weekend my god friend!
