Many thanks to Himalayan Scout for sending in the following images.
Disused face masks found around Tredegar.
The images speak for themselves....!

These discarded masks only serve to give us all an unnecessary reminder of the dangerous time in which we now live.

I've come across quite a few of these whilst walking the dogs, brand new ones dropped up At. James's Reservoir, a posh material one down the line, which makes me think these may have fallen from someone's pocket. I'm the eternal optimist.

Paul, I saw a photo recently of a mallard with its feet entangled in the elastic / string one of these masks. Thankfully it was rescued.

It beats me why people are so inconsiderate, it doesn't take too much thought or effort to carry re-sealable bag and keep used masks in it , then dispose of them when getting home.

Are these people, like SOME dog walkers, too lazy, too stupid or just couldn't care less?
I think the answer is a combination of all 3,

It also shows that they care not for their friends and neighbours.
I like things to be tidy but I would not pick up someone's mas since they may also have had the virus.

So glad to hear that the Mallard was rescued from it's entanglement.
But as we know Titch, the threat to animal life from any kind of discarded rubbish can be devastating.
And of course in these times as pointed out by milkman there is a threat to human life by attempting to pick up a mask and place it in the bin.
Thank goodness for litter pickers I say.
My sentiments are exactly the same as cupcake's.
Why cant they put their litter in the rubbish bin?
Whatever happened to the slogan "Keep Britain Tidy"?
Guess that's been thrown somewhere too

It seems my optimism is misguided, the dropping of masks seem to be an epidemic all by itself. These people are LITTERBUGS in the literal sense. They think they will disappear on their own, the dirty devils.

saw 5 masks in one parking bay outside lidl this morning (all the same type), so i would deduce that they were thrown out from one car. so someone took the time to be a good citizen (in the eyes of others), yet happy to throw them out of the car door when no-one is looking.
