  • But can you do the BearVault?

    July 29, 2009

  • "But in one corner of the Adirondacks, campers started to notice that the BearVault, a popular canister designed to keep food and other necessities safe, was being compromised.... Wildlife officials say that Yellow-Yellow ... has managed to systematically decipher a complex locking system that confounds even some campers....

    'She’s quite talented,' said Jamie Hogan, owner of BearVault, based in San Diego. 'I’m an engineer, and if one genius bear can do it, sooner or later there might be two genius bears. We’re trying to work on a new design that we can hopefully test on her.'"
