U.S. (KXAN) — The next time you eat Yoplait yogurt make sure you crush the cup before throwing it away.

Animal rights activists said yogurt cups are killing small animals like skunks and squirrels.

They are getting their heads stuck in the cups and may of them are suffocating or dying from dehydration.

Animal rights activsts say they have asked Yoplait’s maker, General Mills, to change the cups design, but so far they have refused to do so. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
