Regarding the March 1 comment, "PETA infringes on
Americans' pursuit of happiness," by Bassmasters President Michael Cusano:
If fishing hurts, the question isn't what to do about
PETA, but how and when to stop fishing. And, as Cambridge University
professor of animal welfare Dr. Donald Broom tells us, "The pain system in
fish is virtually the same as birds and mammals."
So fishing hurts. Golf anyone?
