Obligatory:

Meh. Call me when it can defeat a raccoon-proof garbage can.

(Just kidding. If raccoons can defeat them, a honey badger probably can too.)


#4

All it takes is some bungee chord, at least that works great for my parents. Though i have heard from people here in the BBS that raccoons in other areas can be much more persistent.


#5

Sounds like they need Jack-Jack.


#6

Um… you shouldn’t do that to your parents…


#7

Just imagine what i do to people who arent related to me…


#8

Color me skeptical that this set-up is proven to be “baboon-proof”. (“i’ve known some baboons, Senator, and you’re…”)


#9

I would NOT want to be the person having to open that bin if that honey badger had fallen in.


#10

Honey badger don’t give a shit, it just takes what it wants!


#11

Mmmm, Honey Badger – so hot!


#12

Seriously? A baboon couldn’t figure that out? You gotta be kidding me. Takes the baboon down a few pegs in my eyes, for sure.


#13

Notice she makes good use of the hoop as a step.


#14

Came for this and almost lost faith in the BB community

If I had honey badgers in my neighborhood, I’d buy hams and crowdsource a bunch of Rube Goldberg contraptions and turn the place into the Honey Badger Proving Grounds.

I know it’s not feasible, but let me dream a little.


#16

We will have a honey badger-proof container when we can cause honey badger to care.


#17

Yeah, seriously, that looks baboon-easy, not baboon-proof. Unless someone forgot to lock it or something.


#18

@Ratel!!!


#19

If it’s baboon-proof it’s probably me-proof…but nothing is safe from the Ratel kit.

Seriously this section should literally be only “Honey badger don’t care it just takes…what it wants”
