      Aw, too bad people are stupid enough to throw a TV into the water like that. But, hopefully someone took it back out.

      Happy WET & WILD Feathery Friday!

      A very powerful photo!

      This is where we something that is initially funny, but looking further into this photo, it is not funny at all, it gives a rather serious message. A very effective message against dumping our crap into other animals' homes!

      A sad state of affairs! Not funny at all. Some of our local ponds are full of trash, and I see turtles choked on plastic bags and birds tangled in discarded fishing line. Unless someone finds them early they die slow and painful deaths.

      Oh, what is wrong with people!!!!!! I tell ya, sometimes I feel like giving up. The way we simply destroy the habitats of other living things is just wrong!

      Some people (and animals) will do anything to try to get on TV! :-) Joking apart, it's a disgrace to see things like that. Great shot
