UNBELIEVABLE: PETA Requests Fish Memorial Sign
As proof that the group has nothing better to do, a PETA representative in California is requesting that the city of Irvine erect a sign to recognize 1,600 pounds of fish that died as the result of a vehicle crash in that city.
A tanker carrying the fish—actually saltwater sea bass, but incorrectly identified by PETA as soles—were en route to a fish market in an oxygenated tanker truck when the crash occurred. When the October 2012 incident happened, traffic was tied up until the spilled fish could be removed from the street.
In a letter to the Irvine, California street superintendent from Dina Kourda, a representative of PETA, she requests that the city erect a sign at the site of the crash. The requested verbiage on the sign would read, “In memory of hundreds of fish who suffered and died at this spot.”
The letter also claims that fish can tell time, use tools and can sing. No one reported any wailing by fish or the singing of fish funeral hymns when the truck overturned.
