Bear Spray

Can bear spray be in checked baggage if I fly. A friend of mine just came from yellowstone and flew home and brought her bear spray back in her checked baggage. From what I have read on this forum airlines wont let you have it in baggage. Does anyone know for sure. thanks.

I flew with it in our checked baggage once not knowing the rule. When I got to Whitefish, my brother asked me where I got my bear spray and when I told him I got it at REI at home he started laughing and told me it was illegal to fly with it. We were lucky our luggage was not checked.
