Be careful of what you throw in the water

Walking through the park I spotted a turtle. I noticed the leaf on its back and what I thought was a branch in its mouth. Later when I reviewed all my pictures, to my dismay, I noticed the turtle had a hook in his mouth. I was at a park and the turtle was near a pond. People need to be more careful about what they throw or drop in the water.
