Scare off

Ross

I believe the answer is:

deter

'scare off' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for deter that I've seen before include "Hinder, prevent" , "Frighten off; prevent" , "Discourage through fear of consequences" , "Dishearten" , "Discourage (someone from an action)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
