Bird proof packaging

I read in a book a while back, forget what it was, that to catch raccoons, all you have to do is stick something shiny in a log that won’t come out easily, and when a raccoon sees it, it will not let it go if it can’t get it out of the hole.  Something similar happened today on my walk to work today that was hilarious, to me at least.  Someone had dropped a ziplock bag of cashews or something on the sidewalk and a bird was pulling and pecking away at it.  It was really showing signs of desperation in its efforts.  I was picturing the monkey banging on something it couldn’t figure out.  I’d almost want to do this for entertainment purposes when I get bored.  Would that be animal abuse?
