PETA to Monocacy River Advisers: Name Stream Fishing Hurts

Thu, 25 Oct 2012 10:16:33 EST

Maiming and Killing Fish Is Violent and Should Be Discouraged, Says Group

Baltimore -- PETA has submitted a suggestion to the Monocacy Scenic River Citizens Advisory Board, which is sponsoring a naming contest for six streams that feed into the river, three each in Frederick and Carroll counties. PETA's submission for what is now known as "Frederick County Stream #2"—which is in the vicinity of New Midway and LeGore Bridge—is "Fishing Hurts" Stream. In the entry, submitted on PETA's behalf by a local supporter in Frederick, PETA points out that numerous scientific studies have proved that fish are intelligent, sensitive animals who experience pain just as all animals do. In fact, their mouths are particularly sensitive, causing fish to feel intense pain when they are hooked.

"Naming the stream 'Fishing Hurts' would send the message that fish should be allowed to enjoy the peacefulness of the beautiful Monocacy River area, too," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "The more that people learn how clever and sensitive fish are, the less likely they'll be to stick a hook or a fork in them."
