A sharp-shooter keeps her distance, but is ready to protect her colleagues if necessary.

Off to the left, you can't see him in this photo, is another park ranger with a tranquilizer gun. If they have judged the size of the bear correctly he will lay down in ten minutes. But just in case he charges, they have to watch him with a loaded weapon as well. They judged this bears weight wrong, so it took a second tranquilizer to get him down.
