Young Bear Investigates Trash Can in Tennessee Backyard

A young black bear was caught on camera attempting to open a bear-proof trash can in a residential backyard in Tallassee, Tennessee, on May 24.

This video, captured by Carla Lewis’s security camera, shows the bear pawing at the trash can and making four attempts to open it.

Lewis said adult bears have “left several teeth and claw marks on the lid.” Credit: Carla Lewis via Storyful
