Bear repellent defense spray is more effective against bears than guns! It’s true! Plus, it will not cause them long term harm or damage, just as a pepper spray will not hurt a human. So, when you think about it, these really are a nice, and humane way, to treat a bear, but also with scaring him off.
The Sierra Club wants the Forest Service to require everyone who enters a national forest in grizzly bear country to carry bear spray according to Spokeswoman Heidi Godwin, as she said in a news release…and we quote Ms. Godwin here…
"The proper use of bear repellent pepper spray will reduce human injuries caused by bears, reduce the number of grizzly bears killed in self-defense, and help promote the recovery and survival of the grizzly bear."
A recent study conducted at Brigham Young University confirmed that the best defense against any bear is a pepper spray product… and that they are even more effective than a gun.
Tom Smith, the wildlife biologist who leads the study, told us that "The ease of using pepper spray, it turns out, is more effective compared to the mechanical shortcomings of a gun and the hesitancy of some people to use lethal force." (Most people would not really want to kill a bear, besides, it is not like swatting at a bug in your kitchen.)
In an earlier study, Smith found that pepper spray worked for all but three out of 156 people who were involved in 71 conflicts with bears. Pepper spray also has a lasting advantage, Smith said. "When you spray a bear, you are powerfully conditioning that animal to stay away from people," he said.
