Bear Mace vs. Pepper Spray
The woman’s choice of bear mace was a more dangerous one . There is a significant difference between your average pepper spray and a bear mace. Bear mace is designed to be shot from a further distance and has a higher concentration of the active ingredients. Pepper spray is not as strong and is meant to temporarily incapacitate an attacker. According to information about both, it really depends on the brand or specific product but generally bear mace is more powerful.
