They have become the unofficial animal (pest?!) of Toronto: the procyon lotor, or common raccoon. Many believe their swelling numbers are due in large part to the green bins they somehow find so easy to open: every night of the week, an all-you-can-eat buffet awaits these pesky bandits.  Ah.  But fingers crossed: all that may change beginning this week when the city rolls out new bins they claim are raccoon-proof. CityNews has the story!

Do you think these ones will work?!
