Fishing line kills birds

This website is so important I must tell you about it.

Copied from her website --- Please go read

Improperly discarded fishing line cripples and kills and wildlife at an alarming rate.  Birds frequently become entangled in the line, usually resulting in their death though sometimes severing a limbs to free themselves.  Of those few that are able to sacrifice a limb for a chance of survival many will only eventually die when the wound becomes infected.  This is a totally unnecessary and wasteful tragedy that can be easily prevented.  If you fish, remove all line and hooks and take it with you for proper disposal, if you are hiking or bird watching and encounter discarded fishing line (or any other type of string) remove it.
