Flying Ring, Frisbees with holes whatever you want to call them, are harming our marine wildlife. The sale of them needs to be banned. Every year there are reports of hundreds of seals ending up injured or dead because of a simple toy.

Flying rings get embedded into seals necks and cause, I should imagine, a lot of pain.

Seal pups are apparently inquisitive mammals so often play with these rings when they find them. It then gets stuck on their neck and as they grow it gets tighter and tighter until eventually they choke or starve to death. Please ban the sale.
