Plastic bags continue to take their toll, and not just on marine life. A dead deer has been found in Khao Yai National Park, central Thailand, with 3 kilos of plastic bags inside it.

The deer died after eating plastic bags and plastic cutlery left behind by visitors to the national park.

The heart-breaking photos were posted on Facebook, with this latest death coming in the wake of the death of Mariam the dugong. A second rescued dugong, named Yamil, has now also passed away.

For the Facebook user who shared the photos, enough is enough.

“It’s about time that we stopped discarding garbage, especially in reserved forests and national parks.”
