'Big carnivores are probably best faced. Running away will do you no good since they can easily outrun you and this is exactly what prey species do. Do something that a prey species would not do, like throwing rocks or running at the animal shouting and brandishing a big stick. The predator will then be so surprised and confused that it will probably retreat'.
