Who is at fault here? The passenger, the employee or the bear?

This would've been much better had it been a Canadian airport, eh?

TSA at their finest - good thing it wasn't a "bear hand grenade."

Why would anyone be carrying bear spray onto a commercial airline flight?

You'd be surprised what can be found in checked bags! I know a thing or two because I've seen a thing or two (with apologies to that Farmers Insurance TV commercial guy.....)

Checked luggage, sure. All sorts of stuff goes there. But carry-on? A nail file or a pair of scissors, I could understand overlooking, but how do you accidentally carry something like bear spray?

"Oh, yeah, I run into bears all the time in SLC. Gotta be prepared."

Accidentally, out of ignorance of TSA/airline policy, or simply reluctant to part with the can after spending so much money on it. You can have it shipped but that's expensive too as I believe it's HAZMAT.

Update: Bears are on the "No Fly" list...customers advised to leave their bear spray at home.

Now, was this for the hairy kind of bear, or for people with no clothes on? Enquirering minds want to know!!!!

You've got a point. It could be for bears of a very different sort.

The manufacturer of the bear mace is responsible. If they had never made it, this would have been completely avoided - right?
