Grand Canyon Park in Arizona gets about 5 million visitors a year and some of them, accidentally, may be killing animals.

"Love Locks" are a thing with lovers these days. Young couples place locks on certain things or in certain places to represent their love.

Once locked, they toss the keys into the canyon so it can't be unlocked to symbolize their love never ending. Arizona game wardens have bolt cutters though so, strike one.

Strike 2 is even worse and it's the reason Arizona is taking this so seriously. The keys peeps are tossing are shiny and condors love shiny things.

The massive birds, already endangered, are one of the rarest birds in the world. They're also very curious and will eat keys, coins, etc. The bird could choke on the item or it could lodge in their intestines.

Either of which could be fatal so, enough with the locks, huh??

"If a condor ingests too many objects like this, it could die," the post warned, adding, "Objects are thrown from the rim every day. Padlocks and trash are not anomalies limited to Grand Canyon. Do your part to not contribute to these bad habits and inform others of what can happen to the wildlife if these behaviors continue." -

Throwing stuff around can endanger many animals and, perhaps, even people hiking down below. Honestly, seeing a bunch of padlocks hanging around is kind of ugly anyway.

Arizona Republic wrote that acting up in the park and/or throwing stuff into the Grand Canyon can get you 6 months in prison and set you back $5,000.

Just get her flowers or something, ok? Here are a few other things you should know.
