Green light in the Constitutional Affairs and Labor commissions: the Foresters in Trentino will be able to use the defense tool

The Constitutional Affairs and Labor commissions of the Chamber approved two identical amendments by the Lega and Fdi to the decree on the PA which authorize the foresters of Friuli Venezia Giulia and Trentino Alto Adige to use pepper spray to defend themselves from bears. This is a first step after the ministers for the environment, Gilberto Pichetto Fratin, and for infrastructure, Matteo Salvini, had opened up the use of the tool.

The anti-bear spray, just like the mace, the stinging substance for self-defense, contains a substance with a high content of capsaicin (the active ingredient of chili peppers), in higher concentrations than that used for humans. Until today it was illegal in our country but it is already used abundantly in the national parks of the USA and Canada.
