More than a dozen campers from Camp Wo-Me-To in Jarrettsville were decontaminated and six taken to a local hospital for treatment after deer repellent and fart spray caused them physical irritation.

The Harford County Hazardous Materials team was called to the Christian-run camp near Rocks State Park after a 9-1-1 call around 10 p.m. Wednesday, according to a release from Harford County Department of Emergency Services.

The initial call was for medical assistance for a 16-year-old boy who was suffering from eye and respiratory irritation, the release states.

A short time later, more medical units were dispatched to treat more than 12 patients at the camp suffering from similar symptoms, according to county government.

The Hazmat team determined two products—a deer spray and a product labeled "Liquid Ass"—were sprayed in two different cabins on Camp Wo-Me-To grounds, according to the release.

According to the product's website, "Liquid ASS is a uniquely stinky butt-crack smell in a bottle. Great for Practical jokes and gag gifts."

Both sprays are known to cause respiratory and eye irritation, according to the county release.

The two cabins were ventilated "to help dissipate the strong odor," the release states.

The Hazmat team decontaminated more than 12 campers and six were taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air for evaluation and treatment, according to the release.

The Hazmat team was on scene until about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

So some parent let their kid take a known irritant to camp?!

Sounds more like the parent dropped off their known irritant at camp armed with a known irritant.

Could this spray be used to cover up the stench in our newsrooms?

I get "liquid ass" every now and then and do some spraying of my own but it's usually after a night of drinking and beer nuts.

I sprayed some Liquid Ass into the fresh air intake of my neighbor's warming-up vehicle. When he finally drove off he only got about 150 feet then jumped out and inspected the bottom of his shoes. I was laughing so hard that I almost puked!!

@Zoltan: LOL. Where can I get some of that "liquid ass", "Rite-Aid?
Zoltan December 30, 2013 at 06:08 PM
@knee jerk, I get mine from Amazon.com . Approximately $5 for small spray bottle. I keep it stored within a Ziploc bag in my garage and refrain from ever bringing it inside my home.

@Zol: Thanks, I checked E-Bay and they have it also with good feedback, also have a product they call Tex-Ass. That might be good at barbeque's and rodeos.
