Maybe it was one of those super organic zucchinis from Michelle Obama's White House garden.

I was wondering if it is legal to have a zucchini for self-defense with a OAL of only 14 inches.

Yeah, it's legal, but not in California. It's not on the approved vegetable list.

And just what was this woman doing with that zucchini BEFORE the bear attack?

On a side note and a vegetable related to the zucchini:

It's nice to see that those infernal veggies have SOME use! The zucchini, that is, I like cukes.
