PETA wants sign to memorialize fish killed in crash

An Irvine resident is requesting that the city install a sign to memorialize the hundreds of fish killed in a traffic crash in early October as they were being taken to Irvine Ranch Market.

In the letter, Dina Kourda, on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, asks the city’s street maintenance superintendent to place the sign at the site of the crash on Walnut and Yale avenues.

The sign would read, “In memory of hundreds of fish who suffered and died at this spot,” to remind tractor-trailer drivers of their responsibility to the animals who are “hauled to their deaths every day,” according to the letter provided by PETA.

    YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING! Memorialize fish killed in a traffic accident? We do less than that for ouir fighting troops overseas. We do less than that for our fire fighters and police officers. Some one please give this woman the address for Fairview State Hospital and I’ll pay for her room…….maybe!

    I trust Ervine is Ervine, California, a city and state on the verge of bankruptcy. If this nut case wants a sign she can pay for it. Only in California would some dimwit think of something like this. That she is a member of a hypocritical, inane organization such as PETA seems appropriate.

        they must cringe when duck and deer season open; right? Do they eat fish? Have to kill them before frying….

    How about we memorialize the millions of babies murdered in the womb of their mothers. We put a higher value on animals than we do on human. God forgive our sins!

    Problem, the fish were on their way to the market for sale. I doubt they were alive when loaded in to that truck. A sign at this location would be a misnomer!

    From the land of the lefty loony-tunes, we bring you the fish memorial! They wanted this craziness to come out of the city budget, but surprise, there was at least one official who told them to take a hike. 0bama voters all, I suspect.

    Wish I were Governor, I would let Peta and the Environmentalist know they can live in the state I would Govern but they can not say a word. I would get rid of all their stupid laws and rules and get back to since. I like the other comment that we put up signs for all the little babies killed in the womb. I also like the one about the fish fry. In fact, I would love to fry the fish on the West side of the valley and give the water back to the farmer. In fact, we could feed the homeless.

    I couldn’t get to Irvine for this, but I recently memorialized a tasty blackened salmon by eating it slowly and savoring each bite. I plan on memorializing flounder later this week and maybe trout as well. I especially like to memorialize them with a little butter or malt vinegar or even tartar sauce if I’m feeling particularly pedestrian. I’m certainly not above snacking on fish and chips—in memory of—of course.

    There are several million unborn children that have been murdered, especially since Roe v Wade. I would encourage Dina to raise her sights a little higher than caviar and do something that actually matters—like protecting unborn babies and memorializing those that received the death penalty for daring to be planted inside a womb—as if they had a Choice!
