Published by PETA.

PETA’s giant Freeda Fish was caught trying to sink a Lake Ridge, Virginia, “Fish Out.”  The Lake Ridge Parks & Recreation Association dumped 750 rainbow trout into a swimming pool, and over the next week, people can catch them for entertainment. But Freeda and her pals made waves at the event, passing out fliers explaining that being hooked hurts.

Join Freeda and her buddies in letting fish be your friend, not your food,  and out fish from your diet.
