A few years ago I was talking to one of the folks who is a caretaker at Camp Marcella, which is a camp for blind children in Morris Cty, just south of the Newark Watershed. He told me they took the plastic top off the trash dumpster and had a metal one put on, with friction locks.

He watched some small bears come up and try to open the dumpster with no luck. Suddenly the all backed off and a "big SOB" came out, and jumped on top of the dumpster. Being "smarter than the average bear" he just used the metal top like a trampoline til the lock sprung...then he ate.

Bottom line--too many bears is too many bears, and regulations aren't going to fix that problem...hunting is.
