All pets are at risk of suffocation, but did you know that this problem affects our wildlife all over the world, as well?⁣⁣

This duck in the United Kingdom was found by a passer-by with a chip bag stuck over his head. Luckily, the bag was removed in time, and the lucky duck was saved from suffocation.

We must all do our part in protecting our wildlife from the perils of suffocation. Most wild animals are alone in the wilderness and do not have anyone to readily help them.  

Even if you’re not a pet owner, make sure that you’re still cutting up your chip bags, snack bags, pet food bags, and all other food bags before you dispose of them.These food bags can get into our landfills, yards, picnic areas, beach areas, and hiking spots and pose suffocation risks to stray dogs, feral cats, deer, foxes, squirrels, birds, and other wildlife. ⁣⁣
