Local Reporter Julie Tremmel Gives Bizarre Tips for Bear Attack (Video)

| by Michael Allen

WJAR-TV reporter Julie Tremmel recently demonstrated some "tips from experts" on what to do during a bear attack.

The Providence, RI., reporter recorded a voiceover with some bizarre visual advice, which included Tremmel making faces into the camera, waving her arms  to let the bear know you're a human being  rolling her eyes and rolling onto the ground pretending to play dead.

At one point she does a "shhhh" face with her finger up to her lips, screams and throws her shoes to stop the bear, notes

Tremmel did not say where these "tips from experts" actually came from.
