Experts note that the lever door handles wouldn’t be able to stop an attacker.
“We’re talking about 400-pound (181 kg) animal — they can put enough pressure on to crack and such locks,” said Randy HAMPTON from the Department of parks and wildlife Colorado.

“This may be the same bear, who in this area were cleaned out trash cans in search of food during the last few years — suggest the officials. — Past attempts to trap the bear were unsuccessful.”
