A Canadian fisherman hopes his astounding catch of a pike growing around a drink wrapper will teach others not to litter.
“Pick up your garbage. This is a Powerade wrapper which takes up no room in your pocket until you get to a garbage can. Please share!” Adam Turnbull, of Sarnia, Ontario, wrote on a Facebook post.

Turnbull said he removed the wrapper and released the fish back into the waters of Alberta.
“I was very surprised a fish could even survive like this,” Turnbull told Fox News, adding that he has never caught anything like it before.
“I spoke to a biologist and the blockage was just behind its stomach so it would have been able to eat normally, just longer for digestion to take place,” he said.
