PETA to Honor Poor Soles

Fish-Peta

An Irvine resident—representing PETA—is requesting that the city install a sign to memorialize "the hundreds of soles killed" in an October smash up. The truck carrying 1,600 pounds of live fish and several tanks of pure oxygen crashed with two other vehicles. The oxygen was used to keep the fish alive as they were being taken to market.

"Technically, the fish were going to die anyway. And they weren't soles. They were bass, of the saltwater variety."
