VIDEO LESSON: He Who Fights and Runs Away ...

For he that fights and runs away, may live to fight another day, but he, who is in battle slain, can never rise and fight again.
- Goldsmith, Oliver

An example what happens when the self-defense stages of DETER and DISRUPT are not followed up by DISENGAGE.

In this situation, the caribou after a well executed DETER & DISRUPT, lost sight of the fact that the immediate goal of self-defense is to DISENGAGE. It appears that even caribou suffer from over confidence, and are consumed by the desires of the "ego". Although, it is possible that the caribou having faught countless battles of domination with other male caribou, "forgot" that unlike his usual combatant, the bear's immediate goal was to eat him.
