The Creepy Clown epidemic has died down almost completely since Halloween 2016, but some homeowners in Virginia found a way to re-purpose the idea.

Ironically, the house is located in Salem, Virginia (the home of the Salem Witch Trials) and we're not sure if the family was aiming to stop an animal as big as a bear, but it was successful regardless! Score one for creative trashcan protection!

Considering the amount of wild animals we have in Wyoming (mountain lions, bears, dear, antelope, wolves, raccoons, jackrabbits, etc.), this might be an effective deterrent here as well.

*Speaking of "creepy"... you remember this "clown", right?
