Ask Macmillan to drop cruel Fishing event

In June 2009, the charity Macmillan Cancer Support is holding its annual 'Big Fish' event to raise funds, where people are sponsored to fish and can win prizes such as for the heaviest fish caught.

It is disappointing that a charity dedicated to helping prevent suffering is using such a barbaric means of fundraising. Multiple studies show that fish do feel pain, and even those who are released back into the water after being caught often die from their injuries.

Other wildlife such as swans and ducks can also be injured, or even killed, by discarded hooks and lines.

Please help us to stop this cruel and barbaric event from taking place. There are so many other ways to raise money instead of inflicting pain and suffering on animals!

If you are in any doubt as to how cruel fishing, is please visit these websites
