Catch-and-release fishing is cruelty disguised as “sport.” Studies show that fish who are caught and then returned to the water suffer such severe physiological stress that they often die of shock.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has denounced fishing as a cruel sport, insisting that fish feel pain and urging all anglers to become vegans.
“Fish are sentient individuals who feel pain,” PETA stated in a tweet Friday. “Invading an animal’s natural habitat, harassing them, killing them, and eating them for fun is so cruel.”
Animals, as much as even people like me can personify them, are not people. They should not have the equivalent of human rights, as PETA and other militant groups would like.
In 2017, more than 49 million Americans from across the country took to the nation’s waterways to enjoy recreational fishing. People fished from shorelines, boats and riverbanks. Some kept their catch. Others released. But, they were all unified by the simple joy of fishing.

The true goal of PETA is wiping out the entire human race.
Not a joke.
PETA is the Scientology of dirty hippie groups.
