Crush Your Cans

September 23, 2014-

As if cops saving a skunk with its head stuck in a beer can isn't weird enough, an animal rights organization is offering help to Miami University to make sure it doesn't happen again.  In a letter to Miami University President David Hodge, officials at PETS offered to rush a pack of warning signs to post near campus recycling bins.  "Aluminum cans, plastic cups, and open jars can become death traps for hungry or inquisitive animals if they aren't disposed of properly," said PETA Senior Director Colleen O'Brien.  "PETA's posters would reduce the risk to wildlife by reminding Miami University students and faculty that they can help raccoons, skunks, and other animals simply by sealing jars and crushing cans before they recycle them."
