There is a timely warning via this photo on the ABC news about the potential effects of litter on wildlife.

The mulga snake was on the Borefield road near Roxby Downs.

Its a good reminder to avoid littering and to carry your waste out with you.

Cheers,

Hi Val

The very sad part of life is that the people that did that have no brains and no matter how much publicity there is, they can not be educated, or do not want to change their ways.

Lets stick a bucket over their heads and let them see what it is like.

I feel very sorry for the snake and what a waste of our nature wildlife.



Cheers

I agree, its pathetic!

But how many cat owners let their cats run free killing endless wildlife? Breeding with the neighbourhood cats, endless killing!

I have a snake which I need a licence for but can have half a dozen cats which I dont need a licence for, strange?

Anyway, rant over, I get cranky with cats. Or should I say, cat owners!

G,Day

As a wildlife carer I can sure agree about injury to to our little bush friends thats caused by litter & more so CATS!
Not feral ones, the supposedly cute pet cats with good homes.

Hi John & Val : slightly off track but only last week end we were commenting on the rubbish left behind by camper / fisherman on the beach at the Coorong S.A
