PETA seeks statewide King salmon ban
by Steve Ripley


February 26, 2005

You would think that these people for the ethical treatment of animals (PETA) would have some intelligence like the king salmon but after this "no fishing for king salmon ban" they want the Governor to enact, I don't think they do.

If these fish are as intelligent as PETA says, why do they bite a dead herring with a hook in it? As far as the pain the fish feel when they're hooked who knows. Next thing the PETA people will probably want us to do is go out and shoot the bears and wolves that feed on the salmon. Better throw the eagles in there to so the salmon can have an intelligent pain free life.
