TwowheelinTim: fireclown: A friend of mine kept one of those in her car in college in case of a crisis (Baltimore: shiat happens) and it leaked on her over a weekend.  Had to leave the car open for days on end for it to air out, had it gone over by detailing shops, the works.  Took about a month before getting into the car didn't make your eyes water.

I carry a big can of this while cycling. It works on other critters too. There was a dog that came after me several times on my regular commute route. After blasting it for the third time I think it finally learned its lesson. Last time we crossed paths, it turned and ran away.

Bear spray is a bit of overkill, and the cans are really big and bulky.  You might want to look into some of this stuff.   My grandfather was a mail carrier for about 40 years and for the dogs that he didn't win over with dog treats, he swore by the stuff.  It's kind of a cycling hobby standard.  I've only had to use it once, most dogs will stop chasing if you hit them in the snout with a blast of water from your bottle.

At least he did not hit the can of Axe body spray.

Alphax: Never heard of bear spray.  A repellent, I guess.  Stinky.


Think of it as pepper spray in a fire extinguisher.  That a certain percentage of bears actually like.  They pretty much think that spray is seasoning.

Ah, thrift store. Those places are full of people who couldn't work anywhere else, and they gave this guy a forklift.

many bear repellants are pepper based so...yah...I'm sure that was an extreme irritant for everyone involved.

My son just accused me of puncturing a can of bear spray.

I blamed it on the dog.

Good call subby, 'cause everybody knows Alaska is the only state where bear repellent can be purchased.
