Sarah has pepper spray? I guess so. I wound up researching that sort of thing as a possibility for a later storyline, and that sort of stuff is nasty. I'm not 100% sure it would be legal for Sarah to carry that stuff around at this point in the story.
I'd forgotten that I'd given Hedge claws. I assume those are claws, and not sharpened, gross nails. You know what? Let's go with claws.
