    I doubt that neither he nor any of the other celebs (or anyone else) who support Peta ever get much past their name. They see the word 'ethical' and believe it without researching the organisation behind the name. They would probably withdraw their support pretty pronto if they know that the animals left to them by little old ladies were put down straight away. (Peta call it 'euthanised'). Unfortunately the little old ladies also leave them all their money.

    Anyone read the Lee Childs books featuring the hero 'Reacher'? In one of his more recent works the highly ethical Reacher leaves a friends dog with Peta to look after. Ho ho! Obviously not very well researched! I wrote to LC about it but got no response.

    Maybe anglers should fight back by calling ourselves the People for the Ethical Treatment of Fish. That'll confuse 'em! It would be interesting if our ethics and Petas were contrasted and compared.
    So many cormorants.... so few recipes.

    Interestingly enough, the UK version of Peta seems to have removed all mention of fishing from their site...

    Here's a lovely little quote from their website...

    "Are parents who feed their children meat committing child abuse? PETA thinks so,"

    And people actually support these morons? Most of the supporters are supporting the fight against the fur trade, they're not clued up enough to look at what other c*** they're peddling out in their name.

    I prefer:

    People Eating Tasty Animals . . . . . . . . .

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~
