No can do

Posted: Friday, August 03, 2001

The Alaska Zoo's 16-year-old grizzly bear, Jake, attempts to break into a newly designed, bear-proof garbage can July 26 at the zoo in Anchorage. The can was designed by Grizzly Cans, of Napa, Calif., as a low-cost container to stop black bears from getting into garbage. The company wanted to see how it would stand up to an Alaska grizzly. Jake gave up after about an hour and was finally fed by zoo attendants.
