Are those sprays made to stop bear attacks considered pesticides?

I'm just wondering if they meet this definition of 'tear gas':

Tear gas for the purpose of this section shall mean any solid, liquid or gaseous substance or combinations thereof which will, upon dispersion in the atmosphere, cause tears in the eyes, burning of the skin, coughing, difficulty in breathing or any one or more of these reactions and which will not cause permanent damage to the human body, and the substance and container or device is designed, manufactured, and intended to be used as tear gas.

I'd say that yes, based on that definition, bearspray is indeed "tear gas".  Then again, so could cigar smoke, buttcrack odor, and many brands of perfume/aftershave.

It is just seasoning to make you taste better.  I hear they like bells too.  Apparently the bears like the funny sounds they make when they shit them out.
