Another shocking tale

I found this through the blog A Sense of Urgency and tracked back to the original source, a report in the Houston Chronicle from last Wednesday:
Electronic control device producer Taser International Inc. said Wednesday it received an order for 700 devices and related accessories from the U.S. Forest Service for an undisclosed sum.

The Forest Service is the latest federal department to place an order with Taser. The departments of Defense, Justice, Homeland Security, Interior and Agriculture have previously order Taser devices.

The order will ship by the end of the year.
Deb at A Sense of Urgency wonders, legitimately enough,
Who thinks this is a good idea? Is it for protection against the proverbial lions, tigers and bears?
Personally, I figure it's for necessary protection against some rowdy redwoods somewhere. They can get pretty uppity, y'know.
