People are Stupid, Ctd

Oh FFS, look at this case in the US where some anti-human weirdo wants a memorial to dead fish:

Animal activists want a California roadside memorial sign to honour fish killed during a container truck crash.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) volunteer Dina Kourda told Irvine’s street maintenance chief the sign would remind drivers that fish value their lives and feel pain.

About 750 kilograms of saltwater bass died on October 11 when the truck hauling them to market got into a three-way crash.

Kourda’s letter acknowledges roadside memorials traditionally honour humans, but she hopes an exception will be made.

Irvine spokesman Craig Reem says there won’t be a fish memorial.

But Peta spokeswoman Asheley Byrne said they will go back and ask again.

It’s not the first time Peta has asked to post a memorial for animals killed on their way to slaughter.

They’ve tried to honour pigs killed in Virginia and cows killed in crashes in Illinois, Kansas, and Manitoba, Canada, Byrne said, but none have been approved.

Oh how stupid. The fish were going to be killed and eaten anyway…what is what happend to “food” at the end of its journey.
