Not All Bears are Cute and Cuddly

A man claims he killed a black bear in self defense but he has to defend himself in court as he has been charged with shooting an endangered animal.

John Tanksley says his dog attempted to chase the animal off his property at Newcomerstown, Ohio but the 165 lbs bear kept coming back. While trying to get the dog back in the house, the bear charged the man and his girlfriend.

If Tanksley is convicted of the misdemeanor offense, he may face up to one year in jail and could be fined $1,000.

That $1000 could have bought a lot of Guard Alaska or Mace Bear Pepper Spray. Almost twenty-nine 9 ounce cans worth to be exact.

The proper use of bear pepper spray can help reduce human injuries caused by bears, reduce the number of grizzly, black or polar bears killed in self defense, and help promote the recovery and survival of these animals.

On average, 35 individuals are mauled by bears every year in the US. Kinda justifies $34.88 and maybe the extra $9.88 for the holster. I hate to hear the stories of animals having to be killed needlessly, but everyone has the right to defend themselves from harm.

Don’t become another statistic! Protect yourself with bear deterrent pepper spray and arm yourself against possible bear attacks with safe, humane Bear Pepper Mace.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,

  1. I never knew that there was such a thing as mace pepper spray for bears. In Kansas we don’t have much bear trouble. I admire bears and think they are beautiful creatures.
