Something Fishy Going On in Seattle
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) held its annual convention in Seattle this weekend and—despite public outcry—allowed attendees to participate in a dead-fish toss.
I don’t know about y’all, but when I’m looking for an “outrageously fun” time, I go dancing. I don’t throw around corpses. So to remind the AVMA that sea kittens feel pain just as dogs and cats do—and to provide a memorable image of the suffering that the AVMA willingly supports—we held a stunning demonstration in front of the conference for all attendees and Seattleites to see:
In the words of PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman, “The AVMA is a trade group that often sides with animal abusers, not with animals. People expect more from the very people who are charged with helping and protecting animals.”
Hopefully the attention-grabbing demonstration armed people with some future lifesaving knowledge.
