(FOX NEWS) – 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.

The images have gone viral with more than 19,000 shares.

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.
