Crush the damn cups

There are numerous videos of a squirrel or a skunk with a Yoplait yogurt container stuck on its head on YouTube—and it’s not funny. Animals reach inside discarded cups to lick out the remainder of sugary yogurt. But because of its signature design—narrower at the top than at the base—the animal can’t pull it off. If the critter doesn’t suffocate, it may starve to death, or like in one disturbing video (, the oxygen- and sensory-deprived skunk wanders into oncoming traffic. If you’re a lacto-vegetarian, abstain from buying this product, and if you see the containers, crush them. It’s an unexpected example of yet another way in which dairy products cause harm.
