Provocative Protest Set for Pensacola
in Wake of 'Fishing
For Immediate Release:June 15, 2012
Contact:Shakira Croce 202-483-7382
Pensacola, Fla. -- Holding signs that
read, "Don't Let Your Kids Become Hookers," and handing out newly
designed leaflets that show a gruesome picture of a hooked fish, PETA members
will take part in a new anti-fishing campaign in the wake of the Sixth Annual
Fishin' Chix Pink Rubber Boots Ladies Fishing Rodeo. PETA's point? That parents
who fish send their children the dangerous message that it's acceptable to
torment and kill animals.
When: Monday, June 18, 12 noon
Where: Flounder's Chowder House, 800 Quietwater Beach Rd., Pensacola Beach
"Parents should get their kids hooked on compassion, not on
maiming and killing fish," says PETA campaigner Hayden Hamilton.
"Causing these gentle animals of the sea to suffocate to death or die
slowly from infections caused by hooks is animal abuse, plain and simple."
Fish are intelligent, sensitive animals who experience stress and
pain when they are cruelly hooked or hauled up from the deep in commercial
nets. Fish who are caught and released also experience pain and often die from
their injuries. The journal Fish and Fisheries cited more than 500
research papers on fish intelligence demonstrating that fish are smart, that
they can use tools, and that they have impressive long-term memories and
sophisticated social structures.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
