PETA Wants The Boy Scouts To Stop Fishing
PETA is taking on the Boy Scouts and urging the organization to stop all fishing activities. Why? Because fishing is mean to the fish of course.
In a press release that was sent out this week, PETA urged the Boy Scouts to replace fishing and fly-fishing badges with awards for edible-plant identification and "trash fishing". Trash fishing is basically pulling garbage out of water.
No word yet from the Boy Scouts on if they plan on listening to PETA or if they plan to continue fishing. You can read PETA's letter to the Boy Scouts here if you are interested.
