After about a month of raccoon garbage patrol I can safely say that the Yeti performed admirably in all respects. Other than having to wrap it up in a trash bag when it rained, we hardly ever had to think about the Yeti — that is, until its warbling siren woke us from a dead sleep in the wee hours of the morning.
Final outcome: The garbage-pilfering marauder has decided that my trash can is far more trouble than it’s worth, and he set his sights on the neighbor’s trash instead, which is fine with me.
However, the neighbor started putting a cardboard box about the same size as the Yeti on his trash cans, and the raccoon soon moved another house down — annoying, but a smart little critter.
