CT better watch out PETA is on the War Path
PETA's latest campaign - "Your Daddy Kills Animals" - hit the pile of rubble on my desk, it was sit-up-and-take-notice time.
Seems the group that claims 800,000 members has embarked on a mission to hand out anti-fishing leaflets to children at tackle shops and fishing tournaments.
The single, full-color page looks like a comic book, but that's where the funny stuff ends.
Underneath the cartoonish headline, "Your Daddy Kills Animals," is a drawing of a man in a suit and fishing hat, brandishing a huge hunting knife as he guts a fish. Call it Ward Cleaver meets Jack the Ripper.
On the flip side is a little story about how "your big, strong daddy yanks [fish] out of the water and takes them away from their friends forever."
