    Veterinary group rethinks fish toss in Seattle
    By DOUG ESSER – 12 hours ago

    SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle's famed fishmongers may be tossing rubber fish instead of real ones at a national veterinary association's convention next month following complaints from an animal-rights group.

    American Veterinary Medical Association chief executive Ron DeHaven said the Schaumburg, Ill.-based organization had thought inviting one of Seattle's top tourist attractions — the fish-throwers at the Pike Place Fish Market — to the event would be a great "team-building experience."

    But after People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals raised concerns about the ethics of using dead fish as props at a veterinary event, DeHaven said the AVMA would explore other options, including an alternative PETA suggested: using rubber fish.

    The dead fish aren't used as props. They are sold as food! Stupid PETA.

    My son ordered some literature from PETA. I was a little bit upset with him until the envelope showed up in the mail and I saw who it was addressed to... "Carni Vourus"...

    This is the part that I do not under stand.
    God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,”.
    What are we replenishing? What or who was here before the first two?
