Why fishing stinks.



Fishing should be banned and not allowed in any country. These poor fish are taken away from their families or they are just born in concrete homes. Some people say that fish can't be hurt or they don't feel pain. Well, they are wrong, that's why they squirm when they get their head chopped off or they get a hook slicing through their lips. No one wants that to happen to themselves because it would hurt a lot. So please don't support eating fish or any meat at all. Go vegan! To learn more information about fishing click here.


Here is info from PETA about why you shouldn't eat Tuna http://www.fishinghurts.com/f-tuna.asp :

Do you still eat tuna because you think it’s good for you? In fact, the latest scientific research shows that eating tuna is hazardous to your health. Here are the top 10 reasons to let tuna off the hook.
Brain Rot! Tuna fish accumulate toxic mercury in their flesh as a result of industrial pollution, and the side effects of mercury poisoning include finger curling, cognitive impairment, and coordination problems. A California boy, who was the subject of a front-page Wall Street Journal article, went from being a star athlete and honor student to being unable to concentrate or catch a football because he ate canned tuna. Even if he had eaten only half a can of albacore tuna a week, he still would have consumed 60 percent more mercury than is considered “safe” by the U.S. government.
Tremendous Tuna The largest tuna are bluefin tuna, who can reach 15 feet in length and weigh more than 1,500 pounds. Even “small” tuna species, such as yellowfin and albacore, can grow to be 6.5 feet long and weigh hundreds of pounds. Tuna aren’t exactly couch potatoes—they can swim more than 100 miles in a day—with a top speed of 40 miles per hour.
Heart Attack on a Hook Eating fish is not healthy for your heart! Heavy metals are concentrated in tuna because of the contaminated fish they eat. Tuna flesh is loaded with heavy metals that attack the heart muscle, so the toxicity outweighs any possible health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. According to a recent study published in the American Heart Association’s journal, men with the highest levels of mercury increased their risk for heart disease by 60 percent and their risk of dying of a heart attack by 70 percent. Do your heart a favor—put down the fish fork and pick up a safer source of omega-3s, such as walnuts and flaxseeds.
Would You Eat Your Dog? How about a fish who’s as smart as a dog? Dr. Theresa Burt de Perera, an Oxford University scientist, recently published research showing that fish learn faster than dogs. And University of Edinburgh biologist Culum Brown says, “In many areas, such as memory, their cognitive powers match or exceed those of ‘higher’ vertebrates, including non-human primates.”
Sorry, Charlie Unlike a certain cartoon tuna, fish aren’t begging to be caught. Tuna are chased until they move into a tight group, and then a net is lowered around them. They are dragged against rocks and debris, and some fish suffocate from the sheer weight of other fish pressing against them. Large tuna are impaled on longlines—which are miles of barbed hooks that are left in the ocean for days at a time.
Death, Sopranos-Style Think “swimming with the fishes” in reverse. “Hit men” dump smaller tuna onto ice, where they slowly freeze to death or are crushed when thousands of their schoolmates are piled on top of them. Tuna caught on longlines are beaten until they become unconscious before they are thrown into the freezer—and that’s if they haven’t already bled to death while struggling to free themselves!
Factory Fish Bowls Because fishing trawlers are increasingly emptying the seas of more and more of their inhabitants, fish are now being raised on “farms.” Small tuna are captured and dumped into netted pens. They are fattened on pellets of concentrated fish flesh and killed when they get big enough—if they don’t die first from the parasites and diseases that thrive in extremely crowded conditions.
Sickening SashimiStay away from the sushi buffet if you don’t want to spend the next day at the porcelain palace. Seafood is the number one cause of food poisoning in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are about 75 million cases of foodborne illness every year, including hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths.
Dolphin-Unsafe Tuna Tuna is about as “dolphin-friendly” as a boat propeller. Even if dolphins aren’t “accidentally” trapped in tuna nets, they are still killed intentionally by Japanese tuna anglers because they prey on tuna. Entire pods of whales and dolphins are rounded up and driven into shallow water where all but the youngest (who are captured and sold to aquariums) are slaughtered with knives and machetes.
Tuna-Safe TunaVegetarian tuna, available from http://www.vegieworld.com/cart/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=17&cat=Frozen+Products, is a double-take fake tuna that is perfect for sandwiches, casseroles, and “fish” cakes. It is packed with protein and has an uncanny “tuna” flavor and texture, but it’s free of mercury, harmful bacteria, and suffering.
If you’re “fishing” for a heart-smart diet that has been proved to actually reverse heart disease while also reducing the risk of cancer, diabetes, and obesity and that is good for the environment as well as fish-friendly—a vegetarian diet is the perfect catch.

Weak Vegans?

Today a kid at school offered me a huge chocolate chip cookie today and I said "no thank you" and then I told him I was a vegan. And he said "why?" so I told him everything I know and he told me that I would always be weak because all vegans ever eat is lettuce and tofu and that I need to eat meat to bulk up. I said I can gain lots of muscle by eating vegan foods only. So I looked into it and I saw these freaken amazing vegan and vegetarian bodybuilders. They have so much muscle it's just crazy.

10 Reasons Why Circuses Suck!

I hate the way these people use the bull hook as a baseball bat when the elephant gets "out of line". Every animal should be treated with love and compassion, not chained up in a truck all day and then being beaten with a bull hook. Please do not go to any circus that has animal performances. Have compassion, please. To find out more about circus cruelty, click here.

are you brave enough to watch this?


When I watched this I wanted to stop watching almost immediately and I was near tears but I just never had enough energy to even move my arm because I was just so shocked. It was horribly sad, it was the worst thing I have ever seen in my life. I am glad I watched though because now I know the honest truth, I used to think it wasn't that bad. But it's unbelievable.
You need to watch it because it is the truth and no one is going to tell you this other than vegans.

No Painkiller?

I hate it that people who kill animals don't even use painkiller before they cut the animals balls off or rip their teeth out. I hate everyone who likes to take their anger out on these poor sentient beings.

monkey gets a piggyback ride

This is the cutestest thing I've ever seen in my life. I love how the pigs and the monkeys are friends and how the monkey gets piggyback rides from the pigs.

the government supports this

i hate every Canadian fishermen they are so desensitized to all death

stop the @#$%^&* bullfighting

We don't need this to be on TV or at a stadium in Spain. Help the bulls by not watching TV or going to these stadiums. In just one year almost 10,000 bulls die in bullfighting by getting stabbed by swords and harpoon-pointed sticks that are brightly colored. Once the animal is exhausted the executioner is called in to stab the animal to death. And oddly people pay to see this poor animal that is debilitated die and suffer while his blood is being spilled onto the sand. Even before the fight the bullfighters shoot the bull with a rifle and they drop sand bags onto the animal's back to weaken his bones for a slow and easy kill.

Another great way to tell others the torture of skinning

This man in the video is amazing because he shows the world the truth about skinning animals alive. He does this by putting a TV on his car and he drives around and people can't help but look and stare and they are shocked and horrified by the images they see.

it made me happy to see the rescue of these great animals

I loved the part where the lambs and the sheep jumped out of the big truck to start frolicking in the grass and finally met their mothers

the true life of the hens and baby chicks

This is what the hens and baby chicks need, not a factory farm life that nobody needs. This is truly beautiful.

Why seal hunts need to be banned immediately


Each year hundreds and thousand of "little adult" harp seals (12 days old) are slaughtered by being clubbed to death while they are defenseless and have no where to swim away. 42% of the seals that are killed are still alive while they are being skinned. Most fishermen from Canada say that all of the seals are depleting the cod (a type of fish) from the ocean. When actually the seals are the ones who eat the animals that eat the cod. So if the hunters just left the poor little seals alone there would actually be a lot more cod out in the ocean. So when people ask the fishermen the question "Why do you kill the poor baby seals" they will tell you a dirty little lie. The seal hunts need to be stopped. Millions oppose these seal hunts. So the Canadians need to stop the torture.
For more information about the seal hunt you can check here.

dumbcrap hunter gets his butt kicked by a deer

Why Hunting Sucks

Some people call hunting a sport or a game, well it's not a game. If it were a sport, it should be where the animals have guns too to make it fair. And anyways, killing animals is wrong in so many fricken ways. First, would you like to get shot by a rifle or a shotgun, or maybe even a pistol, or a bow and arrow? No one would. What if you are the mother and a hunter shot your child in the face? Yup that's pretty sad isn't it? Many people have been shot before and they know what it feels like to be shot. It feels like a flaming needle the goes wherever you are shot and it shreds your muscles, and your bones shatter into 5000 little pieces and when you would normally want to run away you can't because you have no muscle to move with and blood is leaking out of you rapidly. Thousands of veins are shredded and ripped up. And even if you do get away from the hunter you end up dying a slow agonizing death.
