SIX PACK RINGS ENTANGLE AND KILL
It is well known that wildlife frequently are entangled in six pack rings. The wild peking duck pictured here had this six pack ring entangled around its neck and bill, preventing it from being able to eat. Fortunately, agents from U.S. Fish & Wildlife were called and were able to catch the duck and remove the ring and this duck was uninjured. But thousands of birds, turtles and marine mammals become entangled in these rings yearly causing injury and death. Six pack rings should ALWAYS be cut up before being discarded, even in your household trash.
