Will people in grizzly country have to use only pepper spray and pots to defend themselves? I know there are only black bears in NY but just wondering.
There's also packs of coyotes (and no natural predators to keep them under control). A pack of coyotes can take down a large buck, so a lone human at night is considered easy prey (No one walks alone out here without a gun at night).
Right now, they're attacking and eating dogs and cats right out of peoples yards. It won't be long before they start going after human kids.
Good thing for the parents, though. Now, because of the new gun laws, they'll have 6 bullets to kill a dozen coyotes before the kids disappear into the woods. They'd better practice up on their bank shots. They're going to have to kill two coyotes at a time with one bullet - and never miss!
