Florida clinic says the problem is so common that they have a drop-off point for residents to leave sickly turtles

When Emily Mirowski took in a tiny loggerhead turtle that had been washed up in Boca Raton, Florida, she knew it wasn’t healthy. It was lethargic, almost lifeless, with a drooping head – healthy turtles are normally so full of energy that they are hard to hold.

Poor turtle. God knows how many more animals must die this way.

La mangeremo anche noi e la berremo , chissà che effetto ci farà

We ingest plastic too but we happened to be bigger.

These stories make me so very sad for what we're doing to other living things with our waste.

Not enough greens

maybe just eat food then? why on earth would it chose to eat plastic?

Images reveal 1,000 dogs crammed into tiny cages at South Korean farmActivists uncovered a never-before-seen dog meat farm in Gimpo, South Korea, containing 1,000 animals kept inside small, rusty cages awaiting slaughter for an annual dog meat festival. Gross to us Westerners, BUT overall it's no different to chicken or pig farms, except we're less likely to keep those as pets. Every animal is a potential source of food. But the cute ones are harder to stomach killing... enjoy your bacon 🙄 When you don't have any problem eating other animals, why do you have problems with others eating dogs or cats?
