No oil, but still plenty of people who trash the beach…

People are losing their minds over the oil spill, and no doubt this is a major catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico. But why don’t people care as much about our beaches, bays, rivers, lakes and wetlands when it comes to our own trash?

This photo was taken June 16, 2010 in a bayou off North Bay, in Bay County, Florida. Fishermen decided to toss their fileted snapper off the boat in the ice bag. How can anyone who enjoys fishing do something like this to the water and animals?

The oil will hopefully be cleaned up by BP and eventually, even if it takes decades, the Gulf should be healthy. But if we continue to do stupid individual acts like this, why would we expect the Gulf to ever be healthy again?
