THEY DON`T NEED A PAPER CUP
Although it`s normal for wild animals to drink water directly from the source, people "thought to give them a helping hand", throwing paper cups in the river.
The squirrel is trying to drink water from a river, thus satisfying a necessity, but waste of people (paper cup, plastic bag and cigarette butt) thrown into the river, impairs water quality and may affect the animal`s health.
Human activities have caused extinction in 40 years, over 50% of wild animals on the planet. These activities include littering randomly, but to prevent serious consequences of this unjustified neglect we can do simple things like placing trash cans even in nature, in places frequented by people, recycling selective, punishment under the law of those who break it.
