Don’t Think it Matters When You Throw Your Gum Onto the Ground? Stuck Hummingbird Begs to Differ

This is really important. Besides the fact that small animals can become stuck in gum larger ones often choke on it or have their mouths obstructed by it.
Humans may be able to pass gum through our systems but most small birds, reptiles, and mammals can’t. Gum looks and smells a lot like food to other animals and it can mean their demise if they try to swallow it. 
It only takes a few seconds to wrap your gum up and put it somewhere responsible, you could just save a life. 

I never would have thought gum of all things could fuck up a hummingbird. Guess it isn’t just gross- for the wrong critter it’s dangerous.

Why the hell can’t people just throw their trash in the proper receptacle?
