The surgical team worked tirelessly for hours, carefully removing the plastic waste from the stomach of the cow.

This incident serves as a stark reminder of the grave consequences of plastic pollution on animals and the environment. It highlights the urgent need to raise awareness about the detrimental effects of plastic waste and to take measures to reduce, reuse, and recycle plastic materials to protect the health and well-being of all living beings on our planet.
