Save an­i­mals

The Enterprise - - Community Forum -

We can pro­tect wildlife by rins­ing jars and jugs and re­plac­ing the lids and crush­ing cans be­fore re­cy­cling them and fold­ing back the tab on bev­er­age cans to block the hole. To save an­i­mals

from stran­gling on six-pack rings, cut apart all sec­tions of plas­tic.

Birds can get tan­gled in fish­ing line and swal­low the hooks — pre­vent it by al­ways pick­ing up any dis­carded line af­ter fish­ing.

Also, plas­tic bags can choke an­i­mals or cause fa­tal

in­testi­nal ob­struc­tions. Take re­us­able bags when shop­ping. Prop­erly dis­pos­ing of trash can mean the dif­fer­ence be­tween life and death.
