Animals such as raccoons, foxes, bears and even stray cats and dogs love to rummage around in garbage bins or at the rubbish dump looking for something to eat. These animals can receive the most horrific injuries from trying to lick inside old tin cans, getting their tongues cut by the serrated edge or even getting their snouts stuck inside the can.
If one does not recycle, the plastic 6-pack holders cause problems too. Birds get stuck in them and so do rummaging animals. One should cut thru the openings with scissors so this will not happen.
And lets not forget some of the chemicals we trash.
Empty oil and anti-freeze jugs always there is some left in those containers.
also household chemical containers..I guess if you cannot recycle then rinse out the contaiers then glue the cap on them.
Yep we move out into the woods then go about thinking are trash magically disappears. Even if we love wildlife we still could be hurting them.
People you do know tthere are non toxic cleaners out there ?They work wity maybe a little more elbow greese. Try them!
Lets at least try to do no harm to WILDLIfE
As a licensed wildlife rehabilitator specializing in raccoons I want to say thank you for all of the great comments and suggestions. As stewards of our planet we need to always think about how our actions affect others. Thank you!
