IRVINE, Calif. — Animal activists want a California roadside memorial sign to honor fish killed during a container truck crash.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals volunteer Dina Kourda told Irvine's street maintenance chief the sign would remind drivers that fish value their lives and feel pain.

About 1,600 pounds of saltwater bass died on Oct. 11 when the truck hauling them to market got into a three-way crash.

Kourda's letter acknowledges roadside memorials traditionally honor humans, but she hopes an exception will be made.

Irvine spokesman Craig Reem says there won't be a fish memorial.

But PETA spokeswoman Asheley Byrne said they will go back and ask again.

It's not the first time PETA has asked to post a memorial for animals killed on their way to slaughter.

They've tried to honor pigs killed in Virginia and cows killed in crashes in Illinois, Kansas, and Manitoba, Canada, Byrne said, but none have been approved.

It's their first fish effort. They will continue trying for memorials when trucks carrying animals to slaughter are involved in crashes and there is a heavy death toll.

"They are on their way to slaughter, which is, of course, pretty hellish. To suffer an accident on the way and be left in the middle of the street is unthinkable," Byrne said.

They (PETA) wanted to create a "Lobster Empathy Center" here in Maine. Guess what? Mainers let them know what they thought of the idea. Lobsters may taste delicious but they're at about the same level as a cockroach when it comes to what they have for a brain.

Give the idiots their memorial. Why not? Make them pay for it, though. Like an "Adopt a Highway" Program. They want the memorial, they pay for the upkeep on the stretch of road 5 miles either side of the memorial.

I hereby name this stretch of Highway 1 "Fish are Friends, Not Food Memorial Highway"!!!

Here we see thug memorials, so as dumb as the animal signs are, I'd rather we mourn the yummy critters while we're eating them. LOL :p

PETA can come into my house and see all the memorials (Mounts) I have for all the animals I've taken. :)

Our 4 year old son, who wants a dog so badly that he cries whenever he sees one (sadly, we can't afford one right now)...decided to take 7 year old sister's goldfish out of the tank to play with it a few weeks ago! My wife called me, laughing so hard I could barely understand her, to tell me about it! She had gone downstairs to the basement to do some laundry and when she came back, it was just lying on the table and he was petting it! She asked him what happened and he told her what he had done! She asked him how it went and he replied, "It was really excited at first...but then he calmed down quite a bit! Now he won't play at all!"

OMG....I nearly peed my pants I was laughing so hard! My wife was in another room and she was laughing histerically!

Needless to say...sister was pissed!
