Back in May we wrote a post called "Bear-vs-Dumpster/Score 1 for the bear" (http://bearskin.wordpress.com/2008/05/22/bear-vs-dumpster-score-1-for-the-bear). At the time I expected that we'd be updating this blog with regular stories about ongoing bear -vs- dumpster battles. It didn't happen. Much to our surprise, the bouncing dumpster bear didn't reappear.
There were, however, a few good bear stories. Some of our very pro-environment staff members decided to keep a small compost pile going in a 5 gallon bucket. Seemed like a good idea, until one day the bucket turned up totally clawed open and chewed apart. Plastic doesn't seem to be much of a bear barrier.
