Damn Bears! Damn Bears! Damn Bears!

Does a bear poop on your driveway? AAARRRRGH!

Do you see this trash can? Doesn't look like much, does it? It is called a bear box and it costs $100.00. That's right one hundred smakaroos! And did it keep the bear out? Noooo it did not. You have to screw on the lid and the only
thing kept out of it was me! When the trash guys put it back they screwed it on so tightly I could not unscrew it.

Yet, please notice the claw and or bite marks( honestly, I grew up in LA...who the hell knows) AND, the nice bear poop he left. Ungrateful damn bear, he ate all the trash and left the paper strewn across the street and then left me that nice present!

I know ...I know I live in freakin paradise but, does a bear poop in your driveway?
