Pepper Spray For Self Defense In Bear Attacks

Pepper Spray For Self Defense In Bear Attacks

In one two day stretch in New Mexico recently there were 4 bear attacks. They happen with great frequency in Colorado especially this time of year. Bear attacks are getting more common as the population slowly encroaches into bear territory.

Almost on a weekly basis we hear or see reports of bear encounters in urban areas near mountainous terrain.

Bears are mostly curious and are driven by an acute sense of smell. They can smell food from miles away. For homeowners near mountainous areas or campers out in the wilderness keeping food wrapped and covered is a must so the smells don’t draw the bears.

There are several things homeowners, hunters, backwoodsmen, and campers can do to protect themselves in case of a bear encounter.

Campers and homeowners who are at risk can arm themselves with bear pepper spray. If a human-bear confrontation occurs, pepper spray may be the best weapon to repel a bear. So much so that the Sierra Club is recommending that anyone who goes into bear country has bear pepper spray.

Bear pepper spray is more effective than a .44 magnum because it burns the bears’ eyes and nose and their mucous membranes are very sensitive to it. IT WORKS!

Homeowners can use the sound of barking dogs to scare bears away as well. Folks out in the Lake Tahoe area know all about how well this works.

Campers who venture into the wilderness and homeowners who live near mountainous areas can protect themselves by getting some bear pepper spray and a device called the ‘electronic watchdog’ to protect themselves and their property from bear attacks.
