Fish are people too?

Those friendly folks at PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, put on a little demonstration in Boise today to let people know that “Fish are Friends, Not Food.”

At the Skipper’s seafood restaurant, the group pushed its “fish empathy project,” which, according to the group’s press release, is based in part on new research that shows that “fish learn faster than dogs!”

Said PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk, “Fish are not swimming vegetables. They’re complex and intelligent animals who feel fear and pain, just as we do.”
