Thumbs down Look out fishermen - Here comes PETA

Following a British study suggesting that fish feel pain , PETA (People Essential Totally Assinine) is now on a roll to get everyone to stop fishing.

Could be a good thing to divert them from manatees....

AND someone paid for that study. Who cares if fish feel pain. They are at the bottom of the food chain.

There can be no end to PETA's idiotic behavior.

......and they should fare quite well against all the Billy Ray Bobs in the USA with their Ranger bass boats- 99% of these guys have NRA stickers right next to their BassMaster stickers.

They have had enormous success in getting America to stop eating beef too.

Sorry. From the article above:

"Bee venom or acetic acid was injected into the lips of some of the trout, while control groups of fish were injected with saline solution or merely handled.
The trout injected with venom or acid began to show “rocking” motion — similar to that seen in stressed higher vertebrates — and those injected with acetic acid began rubbing their lips in the gravel of their tank."
