Pepper spray first gained recognition as an effective piece of self defense equipment because it could ward off attacks by menacing bears.

Imported to the United States from Canada, where it first was developed in its bear repellant form , OC–also known as “pepper spray”–immediately attracted the attention of the U.S. Postal Service, which had been searching for a more effective way to keep dogs from biting its letter carriers.

By the late 1980′s, however, police began using OC to control violent, combative suspects. OC has proved, in many cases, to be an effective alternative choice of self defense equipment to more lethal weapons.

Pepper spray is also being widely sold in the civilian personal pepper spray protection marketplace, where pepper spray has largely supplanted spray tear gas products–familiarly known as chemical mace.
