Brazos Bend State Park reminded guests to “leave no trace” while enjoying the outdoors this Thanksgiving weekend. The Texas State Park posted a photo of an alligator with an empty Gatorade bottle in its mouth last November 22, 2021.

Brazos Bend stated it wants to send a friendly reminder to all to dispose of trash properly. If people bring it in, they must take the trash away with them when they leave.

This is because trash really harms wildlife when they try to eat leftover food that’s not good for them and they often end up consuming trash, like plastics, that they often confuse as food.
