PETA baits Calif. city by asking for memorial for dead fish10/30/2012
PETA has never been shy about courting publicity, no matter how ridiculous the ploy. But its latest stunt is pretty fishy. The animal rights organization, through an intermediary, sent a letter to officials in Irvine, Calif., asking the city to install a sign memorializing hundreds of fish killed in a traffic accident. The letter, sent on behalf of PETA by Irvine resident Dina Kourda, asks the city’s street maintenance superintendent to place a sign at an intersection where fish were killed Oct. 11 in a crash while being transported to Irvine Ranch Market. The proposed sign would read, "In memory of hundreds of fish who suffered and died at this spot." Somehow we doubt the sign will be approved. [Source]
