Samantha Barks: Try to Relate, and Keep Fish off Your Plate

Posted by 2 years ago | Permalink | Comments (6)

Proving that she would do anything to help animals, I’d Do Anything and Les Misérables star Samantha Barks didn’t hesitate to strip down and plunge into a tank of cold water to pose for a new PETA advert. The long-time vegetarian’s ad explains that fish suffocate when they’re pulled out of the water. PETAsamanthabarksAD300-page-001

Numerous studies have shown that fish feel pain, just as dogs, cats and all animals do, and they can learn tasks, have long-term memories, use tools and show affection. When fish are hooked, impaled or netted and pulled up from the ocean depths, they undergo the excruciating pain of decompression, an intense pressure that often ruptures their swim bladders and damages other internal organs.

Fish don’t want to suffocate on land, just as we don’t want to drown in water. Please take Samantha’s advice: relate, and keep fish off your plate! Stop these animals’ suffering by refusing to eat them. Start by ordering one of PETA’s free vegan starter kits:

    If this makes fish suffer more than we had previously thought, then let us stop this, so no more fish shall have to bear the fear of being suffocated and killed in a terrible way.

    We woudn’t like to suffocate!

    All animal abuse should be stopped! Also these fish feel pain!

    Bruno Broughton & others like him, deny the rights of others & even their abilities, just as Hitlerism did the Jews. This is to justify their abuse of them (the attitude that they are less than us, rather than equal to us in rights). If you poke a fish with a stick they will react, just as we would. To say they have no feeling is therefore illogical given the evidence and an outright lie

    Obviously they feel pain because fish have senses as the other living animals have.we need to promote the ban to those activities that harm the aquatic life.
