Our Wildlife Shouldn’t Be Fed Trash

Here’s a sad story that I hope has a happy ending about a Sea Turtle….Sickened by Litter:

VIRGINIA BEACH

A green sea turtle dubbed Kermit, rescued from the surf in Sandbridge by a swimmer last month, is being treated for obstructions in his throat including a rubber band, a balloon, pieces of plastic and a Spanish language newspaper.

A swimmer found Kermit floating upside down in the water near Sandbrige on September 20. Since then the Virginia Aquarium has been treating the turtle, who was thin, lethargic and dehydrated.

Last week doctors at the Beach Pet Hospital found and removed a number of foreign objects from Kermit’s throat, thought to be trash ingested at sea.

Doctors are monitoring Kermit’s condition.

I wish Kermit a speedy recovery. This is why we shouldn’t throw trash on the ground or in the water.

How to Decrease Air Conditioner Efficiency

Back when I was showing all the fast food trash on Newsom Station Road, a reader accused me of staging the photographs because everything was so new looking. She said that “you ate it, threw it down and shot it.”

I’ve never staged any photo of found litter, including this one. I just happened to be walking through Riverwalk Subdivision, when this caught my eye. A newspaper flyer had floated by someone’s air conditioning system and was sucked into it.

I carry my digital camera almost everywhere. This is the consequence of working for a man who is a social media innovator.

One day I may see Yeti tossing a Bud Light can from a pick up truck. Or better yet, maybe Yeti will be photographed picking up litter along the road.

And I’m done with the paper. Toss it.
