So maybe most of us won’t be accompanied by an expert wildlife handler when we go exploring in the woods. But we can
learn something from Jack Hanna–– carry pepper spray!

Last Saturday, Hanna, his wife and a few others were hiking
through Montana’s Glacier National Park when they spotted a mother
bear and two cubs. The grizzly family began to approach the group, but Hanna
expertly guided them to talk loudly and back up.

The mother and one cub passed by finally. But the other youngin’ wasn’t
having any guests. Before they knew it 125 lbs of bear cub was barreling down
upon them.

“At about 30 feet, I unload my pepper spray, and the wind takes it,” he told
The Columbus Dispatch in
his characteristically dramatic style.

Oh, but the bear wasn’t scared.

“Then I unload the second spray,” he said.

Alas, the bear keeps coming.

“Then the third time I unload that pepper spray right in his face.”
Finally!

Hanna claims he’s carried pepper spray for the past 15 years, just for
reasons like this, but has never had to use it. Ironically, too, he had just
filmed a public service announcement encouraging people to protect themselves by
carrying pepper spray rather than guns, even though the latter is now allowed in
national parks.

Even if he were to carry a gun, he thinks it would have been a pretty tough
feat to take the bear down with a firearm.

“There’s no way I could hit that bear with a gun,” Hanna said.

So pepper spray is the way. Good thing he took his own advice

About Personal Savers


The idea for Personal Savers was born in 1995 by Derek Downing and Chad Smith, two national and world champion professional inline speed skaters. While training on the open roads in Georgia, they always came across unruly drivers and stray dogs nipping at their feet. Derek's father David Downing owned an in house pepper spray business that sold to police forces worldwide which helped spark the idea of the original Wrist Saver.

The original Wrist Saver was a crude version of itself today but the concept to keep people safe while being active was born. That idea grew into an actual company, but with the strains of traveling for competitions the business was put on hold...
