Littering

Careless littering

Think about what you throw out your window for the animals or birds that pick it up.

Happy meals are particularly popular to throw out your window.  Next a hapless bear, coyote, or skunk comes to investigate the alluring smell.

While the animal’s attention is diverted by the happy meal  a speeding car happens to run over the animal.

Squirrel killed investigating trash

Many animals are run over

Littering is bad

Just do NOT litter!

Look at all of the grizzly pictures of animals and birds killed or maimed by some ones thoughtless actions.
