YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — A black bear in Yosemite National Park in California was caught on camera acting curious around some of the bear-proof trash cans, and attempting to break into one.

Yosemite National Park shared video of the bear, writing, “Rangers took this video of a five-year-old male bear investigating a bear-proof trash can. Help protect bears by always storing your food properly and picking up litter!”

The bear in the video is collared so rangers can monitor his activity due to his habit of “seeking food in developed areas and showing no fear of people.” A radio transmitter in the collar alerts rangers when the bear enters picnic areas and campgrounds.

Posting the video, the park noted that “some black bears are still active, even in winter.”
