The DEC's description of an acceptable bear canister clearly excludes "non-rigid" containers.

Whoops! Sorry. I have no insight into what the DEC may be considering nor have I heard of anyone lobbying for amendments to the bear canister regulation. Perhaps someone associated with the DEC can chime in.
