Colorado's Boulder City Council is making a big push for bear-resistant trash cans. A very unique test was done to see if these new trash cans could bear up to the strength of a hungry bear.

TV cameras got a close look of a bear going at one of the new trash cans at a testing facility near Yellowstone National Park.

Once the test phase is over, several cities may be ready to purchase the new trash cans.
