thank you for this news. I'm thankful for the man who saved the squirrel. a black squirrel? this is the first I seen, and heard of one. it should be common sense to throw trash in a garbage can. take a bag with you if you're traveling. it's not hard to be responsible of your own trash. people just don't care. they don't think. if the parents don't care - their kids won't care. I'm seeing, and hearing more, and more of this.

Good for him! Little acts of kindness like this add up to something big. We need to be much more responsible with our trash. We need to hammer into everybody's head that littering is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. Always put your trash in a proper receptacle, preferably a recycling bin.

You'd be HORRIFIED to see how much trash gets casually tossed onto the ground at the zoo. Sometimes, it's right next to a trash container. We're a thoughtless species.
