Animals And Pollution, From Desperate Bear To Marine Plastic Islands: The Death Humans Bring To This Planet

He didn’t have a very good looking, maybe he was starving, in a pose only desperate creatures might have. He was sitting among burning trash in a garbage dump and the vision was quite heart-breaking. This is the image caught on camera by Canadian photographer Troy Moth who spotted a lonely brown bear, probably in search of some food that’s so hard to find nowadays in the world we created – or that we have been destroying.

Troy Moth titled his photo “Invisible Horseman – 2017”, as a reference to the four horsemen of the Apocalypse described in the last book of the New Testament of the Bible (the Book of Revelation). A terrible image representing how the world looks like and that the photographer, after some hesitation, published on his Instagram profile.

“This is the most heartbreaking image I’ve ever made. I teared up when shooting it, again when editing it, and on several occasions just thinking about it. I’ve waited nearly a month to post it as I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I do know I’ll never forget this moment, and what happened to that bear afterwards, which I was too stunned to photograph,” the artist wrote on the social network (and how can we not agree with him -Ed.).

But “Troy’s bear” is not alone – unfortunately – and many animals and creatures of any kind (humans included) are severely suffering from the environment pollution. As an example, we are showing you some images, just to mention a few, even though we would prefer there were none.

Our human action has been destroying many parts of our beloved and fragile planet. Let’s reflect on how we can be so cruel, fooling just ourselves. Therefore, we are here today to shout loud:

“Stop Trashing The Ocean”

In this image even the bird is more responsible than us, unless you think animals can buy and go eating some chips in the water, taking care to throw the pack in the bin once finished.


“Stop Leaving Animals With Disgusting Things”

Here you can feel disgusted by a garbage dump near Guwahati city, Assam, where cows and birds come to feed with some ‘improbable decent’ food.


“Stop Creating Plastic Islands Of Trash”

This is one of the saddest pollution photos you can find online. You are probably heartless or evil if you don’t feel to cry after seeing this image.


“Stop Treating The Forest Like A Café, Where Trash and Waste Are Welcome”

How this paper glass may have arrived in the forest we don’t really know. But it’s sad to see that a deer seems to care of this planet more than us who rule it (in such a poor way).

Dear readers, fellows and humans, where do you think you live in, on another planet? Would you ‘spit on the plate from which you eat’? Because this is just what we’ve been doing, and for a long time – at least some of us. Let’s change before it’s too late.
