A devastating photo of a bear slumped over in landfill as garbage burns around went viral. The heartbreaking image is raising awareness of the climate problems our planet is facing and the impact we have on the wildness.
The photo was captured in Ontario, by Canadian photographer Troy Moth who called it “the most heartbreaking image I’ve ever made.” Troy then shared the image on Instagram with the caption ‘Invisible Horseman.’
“This is the most heartbreaking image I’ve ever taken. I teared up when shooting it, again when editing it, and on several occasions just thinking about it. I’ve waited nearly a month to post it as I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I do know i’ll never forget this moment, and what happened to that bear afterwards, which I was too stunned to photograph,” the photographer wrote on Instagram.
Looking at this image, we should all be aware about the devastating impact pollution has on wild animals and their habits.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time a bear is captured on camera looking for food through garbage mountains. Earlier this year dozens of polar bears were spotted in a region in Russia looking for food through human waste!
