@ John L.
Brown bears and black bears who get accustomed to eating human food, start seeking out humans and their food, causing bear – human interactions which can be dangerous to humans and to the bears.
In my humble opinion: If you really will have bear, or worse: racoon problems use a canister, and be done with it. A sack is still crushable.
