Why is it that men get no love? A shirtless man appeared in Lycra “fishtails” and body paint beside a female
“fish” sea kitten at a popular fishing spot in Naples for one of our Fish Amnesty Week demos. Cameras flashed and lively debates ensued among a huge crowd of tourists while media swarmed PETA’s sea kittens. But guess who got all the media glory? The lady sea kitten.
So we’d like to do something that the media didn’t do, and draw your attention to the fantastic fella on the left.
During Fish Amnesty Week, we’re alerting people to the fact that sea kittens suffer tremendous stress and pain when their sensitive lips are impaled on sharp hooks and the animals are dragged to shore to slowly suffocate or have their heads bashed in. “Catch-and-release” maiming isn’t any kinder, as countless victims die from stress and injuries.
