Goldfish Rights: Switzerland Joins the Marching Morons of PETA @ AMERICAN DIGEST: "From guinea-pigs to budgerigars, any animal classified as a 'social species' will be a victim of abuse if it does not cohabit, or at least have contact, with others of its own kind."
The new regulation stipulates that aquariums for pet fish should not be transparent on all sides and that owners must make sure that the natural cycle of day and night is maintained in terms of light. Goldfish are considered social animals, or Gruppentiere in German. - New Swiss law protects rights of 'social' animals - Times Online
When I see the above type of legal activity, it reminds me of the Peta fools that demanded that the Amdro, used to control Fire Ants, ad be removed from TV because, "Fire Ants have a right to life too"!!
Real obvious that these people have never been bitten nor have they seen the devastation that these "harmless" little guys can cause to a piece of land with their 2-3 foot high mounds every 3 feet or so..
