"The bear tried to hit us again last night...our (BearSaver) can was knocked over...some strong bear...and very dirty where we guess the bear jumped all over it but it never opened. The garbage crew righted it and emptied it. (My husband) was washing it off when he got it back in the garage so it looks brand new again. What a can...priceless." - BearSaver user in Pennsylvania
