Someone is posting a Park City man's picture and phone number on warning posters because of past pepper-spray incidents.

The posters of Bob Berube look like Old West wanted signs, only these ones say: "Warning: This man has been known to pepper spray off-leash dogs."

"I just hope nobody comes charging up to me and hits me or assaults me in some way just because I protect myself when I'm walking on the trail," Berube said.

He says the signs are harassment.

Someone took the picture of him at a park and even listed his phone number on the posters. So far, Berube says he's only received one not-so-nice call.

The posters stem from two incidents several months ago where Berube pepper sprayed unleashed dogs that were approaching him.

Berube says he isn't going to go after or sue whoever made the posters, but he's worried about someone coming after him.
