Baltimore -- PETA has
submitted a suggestion to the Monocacy Scenic River Citizens Advisory Board,
which is sponsoring a naming contest for six streams that feed into the river,
three each in Frederick and Carroll counties. PETA's submission for what is now
known as "Frederick County Stream #2"—which is in the vicinity of New
Midway and LeGore Bridge—is "Fishing Hurts" Stream. In the
entry, submitted on PETA's behalf by a local supporter in Frederick, PETA
points out that numerous scientific studies have proved that fish are
intelligent, sensitive animals who experience pain just as all animals do. In
fact, their mouths are particularly sensitive, causing fish to feel intense
pain when they are hooked.
the stream 'Fishing Hurts' would send the message that fish should be allowed
to enjoy the peacefulness of the beautiful Monocacy River area, too," says
PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "The more that people learn
how clever and sensitive fish are, the less likely they'll be to stick a hook
or a fork in them."
