    No one mentions Manitou near Bear Mountain. Or Garrison near Graymoor (a bit of a walk). You can also go into Peekskill from the trail (6 miles)

    I didn't read the article yet. However, there was a bear in NY's Adirondacks that opened canisters. The name was Yellow Yellow. I think it was holding classes and that was one of the students.
