In Haines, Alaska, Randa Szymanski and her husband purchased a locked waste bin in an effort to keep what they thought was a bear out of their trash bin. After keeping a close eye on the bin, the couple finally caught the culprit in action and discovered that the animal causing the ruckus was actually a raven.
The raven tried to open the locked waste bin on its own and eventually unlatched the bin’s handle to open the bin and dig for food.
