    The vet should have stopped the cow. The farmer should have cleared the rubbish away before the cows went on .

    It's Coral bay not talisker. The cows are left to roam around on the beach.

    I know this beach, it's Talisker bay and I started going there to watch Golden Eagles 20 years ago. The beach does get cleared up by locals but all the rubbish and plastic is being washed up from the sea. Rubbish destroying a beautiful place and harming animals.

    doesn't only affect our oceans and marine life but also the ecosystem on the island. After Watching this shocking video of a beach covered with where animals around are risking their lives we should "THINK" the next time we use any plastic items and how it can lead to danger for our and its !

    Let’s all try to reduce our use of plastic, support those campaigning to reduce the use of plastic, collect litter in part of a small voluntary group in Bolton who collect using council bags and Pickers which they collect the bags. I realise it’s only a small act but it’s positive action and there is a ripple effect - who know who you may inspire or educate.

    Just how mean are the cows up there that veterinarians are afraid to approach them. No wonder no one picks up the beach. They're afraid of the fucking cows.

    Is the cow eating plastic or the food inside the plastic ? Is the human who dumped the food in plastic bad or the plastic itself is bad ? Are guns bad or the people who use them to kill others bad ? Are cars bad or drunk drivers ? This whole think against Plastics is like just the same , humans are irresponsible, they are going to remain that way. Plastic is the best alternative . Infinitely recyclable .
