Rocket Dog ... I PMd Frankie about this because I was getting confused (some days, it really doesn't take much!)

He provided me with the clarity that I was so obviously lacking! I'm right in that it is a prohibited weapon against people (d'uh!!! no kidding), BUT I can get it if I am going hiking / camping, and I don't need a permit.

Living in the capital of the country with more laws and by-laws than people, I'm actually impressed that I could purchase it!

Still, I don't need it, last I checked we didn't have too many bears in the city! And if i do see one, there's a nice long list of people that I would just invite over ... making sure the bear sees at least one of them!

jag you will need to learn how to identify "bear scat".
brown bear scat will often be the color of the local berry plants.

black bear will also have some berry and small animal fur mixed in.

grizzly bear scat will have all of the above along with some clothing, bear bells and will smell like pepper spray. hope this helps.

Hahaha! I had to laugh at this, although it's probably true up in Yellowstone. I know that they have had a few Grizzly Bear attacks on people the last few years.
