[pct-l] Bear Canister Break-In!

Got this on another email list from info@Yosemite.org. Very interesting!

   On August 9, a camping party between Upper and Lower Cathedral Lakes 
had one
of their aluminum bear canisters broken into by an unidentified bear.  Two
different bears attempted to get into the canisters and the second was
successful by throwing a canister against the rocks and pounding on it 
until the
end came off.  The bear consumed all of the food inside despite attempts 
by the
campers to chase it off.

They just get smarter and smarter!
