Bear or dog spray vs humans?
Just out of curiosity, and because carrying bear or dog spray might be easier to justify in certain juristictions.
Naturally you wouldn't carry it INTENDING to use it on human attackers, but if you were attacked by humans and happened to use bear or dog spray on them, would it be effective?

I'm sure it'd work just fine. Here's a chart (scroll down the page) that compares some of the different Bear-sprays on the market. When I got to looking a little, it doesn't really seem that these are really much stronger/hotter than the "people" types (Fox Labs, Defense-Tech. etc.).
Of course, in the tactical sense, I wouldn't trust the bear spray any more than I "trust" the normal stuff. It's a step on the ladder, not the "be all to end all."

Well, I dunno, but I once used a CS Tear Gas GRENADE on an angry Grizzly Bear and it worked great on HIM. Blank M60 fire had almost zero effect, however. Noise was not effective. But the gas got his attention!

Bears have a sensitive snout and are easily deterred by sprays. Probably more so than a .44 Mag.

Don't be so sure.
Don't know about the homeless where you are, but a few weeks ago some fool repremanded one who was tearing apart a garbage can looking for something. The homeless guy turned around, stabbed him to death and took off. I haven't heard anything about his capture.

Seems to me that spray would be a good starting point, but be ready for them to become very violent.
