Hmm, this is odd. At least the owner could have left a bowl of water as well. This garbage can is tethered to a tree in the front of someone’s house. Maybe someone was finally pushed over the edge after one too many garbage can thefts?

Incidentally, on Friday when I went to put my own garbage can back in my yard, I was initially disturbed to find it missing. I was incredulous that someone had stolen my garbage can. So, I’m walking all up and down my alley to see if it had been misplaced because it has huge house numbers spray painted on. But no, I couldn’t find it. So I finally give up and go into my yard and lo and behold it was there. Wild! In all the five years that I’ve been taking my garbage can out in the alley it has never been put back in my yard. Which makes sense because there is a fence. So, it kind of freaked me out a little bit. Maybe a really nice neighbor put it back? There’s no way the garbage men but it back right?
