To all smokers, I hope this is a lesson how carereless, ignorant, irresponsible behavior can ruin and disrupt lives of countless people. Share this with your smoker friends. Least you can do is put out your buts and certainly not discard them next to any property.

Perhaps cigarette smokers that were disposed in the mulch, thought that the mulch was dirt.

This happens where I live too.
