now plastic scourge strikes african savannah as lions are pictured playing with bin bags - abs plastic sheet
There seems to be no place on Earth where there is no danger of plastic.
Now there is a photo of a group of Lions playing with an abandoned plastic bag on the hot African prairie.
Earlier, the Daily Mail yesterday released painful pictures showing polar bear cubs playing black plastic in the snow in the Svalbard islands between Norway and the Arctic.
At the sabisha wildlife sanctuary in South Africa, young lions are seen twisting on black bags.
It is thought that it may have been blown from a nearby cottage to a protected area or brought in by the coyote who has been cleaning up the bin.
These two sets of images show the global scale of the plastic waste problem.
Addressing this problem is now the goal of the Post's turn in the plastic movement, which is seeking measures to address the waste that is polluting the planet.
Many wild animals are poisoned by eating plastic.
Lion pictures show the proud members of the reserve osava, which borders the Kruger National Park.
It can be seen that before climbing the tree with his new plaything, people pick up the bag and shake it on its chin.
The other two members of Pride strolled past to see the foreign body and a larger lion, and then chased the young man through the bush to try to catch it before the group lost interest.
The photos were taken by a wildlife filmmaker named Rob The Ranger who threw away The bag after The Pride transfer.
He said: "We have experienced so many winds and all kinds of things have blown in . "
"The bag may have been taken away by hyenas or oons from the shed.
"All hotels have promised to reduce plastic pollution, so this is not very good.
