I love animals and am genuinely upset when I hear of animals in pain, but I honestly thought the story I’m about to tell you was a joke.
Peta has written an open letter to the manager of New Zealand’s national aquarium to request they take fish dishes off their menu.
"We're calling on the National Aquarium of New Zealand and the Fish Bowl Cafe to get their act together", says Peta Australia Director of Campaigns Jason Baker. "How can people take the aquarium's supposed respect for fish seriously when they open their menus and choices of fish's body parts are staring them in the face?"
The letter also reports that fish are intelligent animals which feel pain. I understand that fish are intelligent and feel pain, but I don’t expect they are going to look out into the dining room from their aquarium and say, “OMG, they’re eating Uncle Brian!”
I find the whole story ridiculous. What do you think?
Bye for now
