Early Release For Captive Fish

New, 2 comments

Animal rights activists have criticized the pens used for the project as "filthy" and "overcrowded." 60,000 baby Chinook salmon are roaming free thanks to two apparent acts of pesco-terrorism at Tiburon's Romberg Center for Environmental Studies. With one last week, and another early-morning "attack" this past Saturday, the liberations are being praised by both PETA and the Animal Liberation Front. Although no one has claimed credit for the finny amnesty, it's said to be the largest release of captive animals to date in North America. The fish, bred and raised in a program for the angler's club at Petaluma's Casa Grande High School, would have been released into the wild in a few weeks. [SF Gate; image via Voice of the Voiceless]
