2 Responses to Three Differences Between a Wildlife and A Human Taser

  1. I actually read a story a last summer about an Alaska cop, I can’t remember where, who found a black bear on his back porch getting into some food. He used his standard issue taser on it and it worked. Bear twitched and then ran the hell away. Granted it wasn’t a grizzly, but it makes me wonder if the normal taser works in this application and the animal version is more of a marketing ploy.
