Fortunately, curiosity didn't quite kill off Tinny the cat when he got his head stuck in a tin can.
But as these pictures show, he's not alone when it comes to biting off more than he can chew.
Just last week, one cub was out-foxed by a car wheel, and Keano the Husky spent much longer than intended peering through the garden wall. Yet they're just the latest in a long line of animals who really do have a nose for trouble...
These animals were lucky to be rescued.
The poor little fox with his head stuck in the tire, he must have been petrified. Unfortunately people just dump their rubbish anywhere without a second thought for the wildlife around them.
