    Later today, I’m going to clean up as much trash as I can! This video has inspired me! Although the people who litter should be the ones cleaning it up, they obviously won’t, so I will! Anything to help the environment!

    Wonder if Coyote has ever found a rubber boa? Ive lived in an area where they supposedly are. Growing up I caught everything from leopard lizards, horned roads, rattle snakes, Gopher snakes, but have never even seen a rubber boa?

    Obviously 25 lb pounds of trash on that stretch of road was no accident. People who litter should be sentenced to a year of roadside trash pickup. No exceptions. JP

    Hes finding all those lures without hooks because they are designed to degrade quickly. Most of the time the lure is still fine or just needs a touch up or so and a couple new connecting rings and treble hooks and they are as good as new. Not sure if he does a lot of fishing or knows anyone but they can be expensive and add up in cost quickly for a nice tackle box full. Or maybe since he seems like a nice guy and does that sort of thing often he could fix them up and donate them to a summer camp or boy/girl scout camp. But cool content i love turtles and own 2 i saved about 15 years ago by super gluing their busted baby shells back together after one maybe was ran over or something and the other my cat tried to eat and cracked it up badly. They were about the size of quarters. "eastern painters" not rare lol.

    The importance of being responsible with our trash. It's something too few conservationists openly talk about in videos and such. One of the things I am always aware of is the plastic loops on bottles. I have seen way to many animals with them stuck around their neck, and it is not a pretty sight.
