Hey guys, just to clarify, the bear spray thing is tongue in cheek. Please don't go around spraying innocent gators or gopher tortoises in the face! This is their home, not ours, so respect the wildlife and just safely back off if you are in a situation. We are the intruders here, not them.
I just posted the bear spray thing in response to somebody else's comment about human crazies. I don't own a can of bear spray and have never used the stuff. Only ever carried it when I was young out West in real bear country on long backpacking trips. Even then, the rangers told us to only use the stuff as a last resort if the animal was actually charging you. In most cases, you just made a lot of noise and yelled, they would run away.
I assume this is pretty nasty stuff and should only be used as a last resort if you find yourself in the sights of a 600 lb animal trying to eat you, face eating crackheads in Miami, or zombies.
(may not work on zombies either, hasn't been properly tested, so in this instance, use at your own risk)
