Reminds me of the bear-proof dumpsters so often found with bears inside em around/about the various camp grounds up towards the mountains here abouts.

I think the gold standard is raccoon-proof.
So-called bear proof. If people don't latch them, well...We were in the mountains and my buddy took the trash to the compound dumpster around the corner of the building. Approached it, and up rises a bear from within. Both of them about jumped out of their skins- fortunately for my buddy. The bear jumped out and took off, so all ended well.
We've a couple of horses that have developed their lip dexterity. So much so, they can lift and slide a latch on their stable doors to gain their freedom once they've decided they've been held captive long enough. Rascals...From what I've seen of the black bear in my native habitat, they command much more dexterity than our hosses lips. Now I'm willing to be admit otherwise if given sufficient proof, but I'm of the opinion that most of the bear-proof dumpsters/latches I've seen, absent locking mechanisms requiring a key lock, combination lock, or wrenches to open are no real barrier once the bear has determined that there are grits on the other side of said barrier.I suppose the bear versus bear-proof whatchamathiger is the inverse of the old saying, built an idiot-proof widget and nature will evolve a more advanced idiot.
