“Back to the drawing board. Lol. What a smart animal,” commented one Facebook user.

“Don’t underestimate the trash panda,” wrote another.

The new model was launched in 2016 to replace older bins that were being knocked over and popped open by the raccoons. Mayor John Tory called the rollout a “new offensive” at the time and told the Star that if the critters managed to outsmart the new bin, Toronto would find a way to “strike back.”

But Tory told reporters on Thursday that he’s not worried about this incident, adding there isn’t a widespread problem with the bins.

He said there have been only a handful of complaints with the 450,000 new bins and that if there was a major problem with the bins, there would be trash all over the streets.

“I think (the bins) are working very well and in instances where people have complained, it’s turned out to be the case, most of the time, that it’s either a loose screw that simply needs to be tightened or there’s a flaw in the actual locking device.”
