A sea otter pup trapped in a single use plastic bag! Fortunately mum was able to remove it before her baby suffocated and drowned. PLEASE recycle and make sure plastic is disposed of correctly. Take part in local clean up operations (whether you live on the coast or not) This will help prevent dreadful entanglement issues such as this one.
