Littering is killing the owls
February 27, 2013
When I was coming home from Yakima I saw lots of trash alongside the freeway. It was not a pretty sight.
I also saw a lot of dead owls.
The owls are flying down to eat the mice that are eating the trash. This is not good.
One night we almost hit an owl that flew by us. If the owls stay by the road the owl population will be greatly affected. This will not be good.
I figure there are two things that need to be done to stop this from happening. One...stop throwing trash out the window. Two...clean the roads up. If there is no trash there will be less mice, which will keep the owls away from the roadways.
Please help me save the owls. Keep our roads clean. Please stop littering.
