Seasoned to Perfection

Some time ago I wrote about being stalked in the park by coyotes. It is usually just me and my dog at an early hour, and I guess we look like a nice meal on their way to the horse property nearby, or instead of the stray cats, pigeons, and happy dogs.

I was advised to purchase some bear spray since these urbanized coyotes will rush me and my dog and surround us in true pack style. FYI, my dog is a rottweiler-German shepherd mix and weighs about 100 lbs. I have tried yelling and stomping and making lots of noise, but the coyotes don’t give up easily.

Hence the bear spray.

It was endorsed by the Alaskan Wildlife folks who I trusted knew their stuff.

And so over the year, I’ve pulled the spray can out a few times but haven’t actually used it.

Until a few days ago when the can slid out of the bag and sprayed just a bit as I bent over to unleash my dog.

He was fine.

I was nearly blinded by tears and coughing and wheezing. Holy mackerel that stuff was powerful.

But it didn’t work on the dog and now I don’t know if it’ll work on the coyotes. Makes me think that when I spray it, I’ll just be seasoning myself for them to devour:D

Until next time.
