Oct. 31 (UPI) -- A man who went fishing in a Canadian river shared photos of a fish that was so constricted by a sports drink wrapper that he thought it had been partially eaten.
Adam Turnbull said in a Facebook post he was fishing the Saskatchewan River in Alberta on Saturday when he reeled in a fish with an unusually shaped midsection.
Turnbull said he initially thought something had taken a bite out of the fish until he took a closer look and discovered the fish was growing around a plastic ring.
The ring turned out to be the wrapper from a Powerade bottle.
"Pick up your garbage. This is a Powerade wrapper which takes up no room in your pocket until you get to a garbage can," Turnbull wrote.
The fisherman said he cut the fish free of the wrapper before releasing it back into the water.
