"Bear-Proof" Much?

The Associated Press reports "A bear has found a way around bear-proof garbage cans, ripping the 200-pound receptacles off their foundation." Those cans are bolted to their bases, and a grizzly just ... well, flattened 'em.

When will people learn?

Sorta like when someone makes the mistake of saying about a toddler, "They'll never be able to get into it."

Agreed, PH; never underestimate the power of a determined toddler. :)

I remember a story my aunt and uncle related years ago. He was the manager and lived
in Seven Falls Canyon outside Colorado Springs.
They watched from the den window as some huge bear shoved a large dumpster clear across the parking and up against their home - as it tried to figure it out how to get at the contents. Gave up and left. Scary.

It's true, Cathy - they're enormously strong, and we keep thinking like humans.
