    If attacked by a bag of gummi bears, I understand that you should stand your ground till they make physical contact. Often they are bluffing. If they really hit you, then you play dead. Unless they are red bears.

    Some people claim that the red hots spray will ward them off. YMMV

    Unbelievably horrid attack just down the street from here yesterday!
    seems a whole group of jelly babies were attacked and eaten, with no provocation, by a pack of gummi bears. I thought they would be hibernating for at least another 2 months.
