View Full Version : PETA versus Bassmasters/Anheuser Busch
12-30-2004, 07:28 PM
PETA has fired off a letter to Anheuser-Busch, calling on the company to immediately stop sponsoring Bassmaster fishing tournaments.
Recent scientific studies prove that fish are intelligent individuals who feel pain just as all animals do. Fish are fast learners and can remember lessons their entire lives. Fish intelligence studies have also shown that they recognize and remember one another, and they can tell time. Fish even use tools, which was thought by anthropologists until relatively recently to be an exclusively human trait. Yet these fascinating individuals are mercilessly abused by Bassmaster participants. In fact, fishers could land in jail if they treated any other animal as cruelly as they treat fish!
Fish feel pain and fear every time their sensitive mouths are pierced with an anglerís hook. We urge Anheuser-Busch to stop bankrolling cruelty to animals at Bassmaster tournaments.
Anheuser-Busch would never sponsor tournaments that involved impaling dogs or cats with hooks through their mouths, but itís not any better to treat fish so abusively.

Why can't they put their energies into something more useful?

I once had a fish steal a pair of pliers from me. At the time I thought it was an accident, but now I wonder...

Yea, we had those morons show up at a couple tournaments down here. They were out in boats beating the water with big poles. I pointed them out to my buddy and he said "Well they ain't never gonna catch nothin' that way." It may be a rumor but I heard they had divers under to boats cutting lines.
These idiots have obviously never encountered a fish in the wild. If they did they would realize what insidious masters of evil they really are.

You've never chased billfish in a catch-and-release fishery. These fish are experts at stripping your bait. Thay have been caught so many times that they have learned exactly what to do. One fish can flash through your spread, taking ten baits, leaving behind just the head and the hook, before you have time to grab the first rod.
If you can get 1 out of 10 fish to the boat, you have had a very good day.

Fish are clearly the work of the devil. Around here the worst ones are the dock snook, my enemy. A snook is like a bass on steroids. Some of them like to hang around boat docks in the channels at night. I've had them sit right off the end of my boat looking at me daring me to try to catch them. When you throw them a line they grab it and wrap it around the dock poles and cut your line on the barnacles. My battles with the dock snook are similar to the roadrunner and coyote. I have gone after them with everything but nuclear torpedoes. /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
Still it's not as tough as fishing in Alaska.
