Explanation:
12 Gauge Bean Bags

The 12 gauge bean bag is a shotgun round that discharges a 2.5 cm (1 in)fabric bag filled with lead shot, with a muzzle velocity of about 90 m (300 ft)/sec. Caution should be exercised, as penetration or injury can generally occur if discharged at a distance of less than 10 m (30 ft), but individual product specifications should be checked. The maximum effective range is usually 25 m (85 ft) and the accuracy is reliable.

If a physical deterrent seems warranted, bean bags are recommended over rubber slugs, as the chance of injuring an animal or bystanders is significantly lower. ALWAYS use bean bags over rubber slugs for small or young bears.
