Plastic waste created by humans is so hazardous for all animals including cows and even aquatic animal. People carelessly discard plastic bags that end up underwater and pose a great threat to marine life. The plastic pollution is so dangerous as the plastic pieces may cause entanglement and suffocation of the different underwater creatures.
A similar video shows a fish that gets trapped in a plastic bag and may have died of suffocation. But thanks to the attempt of a diver who rescued the fish.

He reposted the video on his Twitter account that was originally shared on a handle called The Pearl Protectors whose bio read as, “Striving to protect Sri Lankan marine environment by raising awareness about the beauty of marine ecosystems & fostering passionate individuals.”
Hudema wrote, “This diver rescues a fish trapped in plastic. Countless marine animals get trapped in plastic waste we discard. Even the smallest plastic packaging is deadly underwater. It's time to end plastic pollution."
