He made public transit even more un-bear-able.

The lunatic who allegedly sprayed a noxious substance on two Brooklyn buses last week was using bear repellent for the grisly crime, according to law enforcement sources.

Andre Chandler, 46, allegedly blasted passengers with a can of bear spray aboard a B15 Thursday and also attacked a bus driver with the stuff the next day after the driver missed his stop.

Chandler looked wild-eyed and disheveled as he shuffled into Brooklyn Criminal court Sunday for his arraignment, where he was charged with 20 counts of assault for each person he allegedly injured.

His hair stood straight up and he wore a sleeveless hooded camouflage sweatshirt unzipped to expose his bare chest.

“He is receiving physical and mental treatment,” legal aid attorney Anna Boksenbaum told the court in asking her client be released on his own recognizance.

Judge Michael Yavinsky instead set Chandler’s bail at $30,000.

Bear repellent is a potent form of pepper spray that gets its punch from the same chemical that gives chili peppers their heat — capsaicin. An 8-ounce canister costs around $45 and can spray up to 30 feet for about seven seconds, according to outdoor recreation store REI.

Bear mace is roughly 2 percent capsaicin — that’s twice as strong as personal-defense pepper spray that New Yorkers are allowed to carry, which must be no more than 0.7 percent capsaicin, according to state law.

Chandler is due back in court on Sept. 6.

A Brooklyn man accused of spraying bear repellent at MTA bus drivers in two incidents faced dozens of angry transit workers at his court appearance on Thursday.

André Chandler, 46, pleaded not guilty to assault charges as the TWU Local 100 members watched.

Chandler allegedly sprayed two B15 buses with the noxious irritant: in the morning on Aug. 23, and then later that day when another driver missed his stop.

TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano said outside the courtroom that his workers “come here to do a job and go home safe to our family. We don’t come here to do a job and go to the hospital.”
