We have a very elaborate system to protect our garbage cans from raids by 
raccoons, but a few years ago when we were on a trip, the house-sitter didn't 
quite understand and left some unemptied trash on the screen porch.  A very large 
raccoon got in through the one door that opens inward, but for some reason 
couldn't figure out how to get out - so he left through the cat door, taking the 
whole thing with him around his neck.  He did manage to get if off his head - 
we found it in the woods nearby.
