I really wouldn't mind composting, but Yogi (as he came to be known) put the kibosh on it, for sure.

We also have raccoons, big ones, and both bears and raccoons were getting in the garbage, as well as neighborhood dogs (including ours). One summer night several years ago I heard a ruckus up by the trash, and ran out in my nightie to chase off whoever the culprit was. There, lit by moonlight, rose up the biggest raccoon I had ever seen, clutching a pizza box. When he snarled at me over the top of it, I quickly gave up and ran back into the house!

Now we have this thing called a 'Bear Bin' that has a locking door so we don't have to risk life and limb challenging critters that get into the garbage.
