Recently, TV host and wild life educator Jack Hanna fought off three Grizzly bears with pepper spray on a narrow trail. After the reports surfaced, he checked in with CBS' Harry Smith to offer a little more detail.

Why is this cool? Just a few weeks earlier, Hanna filmed a public service announcement for the National Park Service praising pepper spray over firearms to protect hikers, despite increasingly lax firearm regulation in national parks.
