Animal rights activists, those wonderful guys who love wolves, grizzlies and all things deadly and harmful, but hate human beings

I wonder if those jerk activists realize what the alternative is for a FEEDER goldfish?

Guess we’ll have to petition so that anybody who has a carnivorous fish in their fish tank only feeds them lettuce and parsley...

I’d like to stick some of those PETA people in a bear den at spring time and see how much they like maama Griz when she’s hungry and cubbing.

They need to replace it with an Animal Rights BBQ.

The American culture is stuck on stupid.

Exactly how does it harm goldfish to squirt them with water while they swim?

What’s funny is that my first mental image was of a bunch of attorneys doing the racing. Wrong bar.

Just put a little wasabi on them and call them Sashimi
when they finish the race. You'd have to buy new fish every
week but the new “sushi bar” should cover the costs./s

Bartender Joel Cummings told KIRO-FM the fish were cared for when they weren't racing but occasionally they would pass away.

That's just awful.

When I was a kid, we sometimes had a pet goldfish or two.

And occasionally one would pass away.

Something has got to be done to stop this!!

They should replace goldfish racing with pita races... put PETA members on the slide and use fire hoses. Hell, I’d pay to watch. Save the feeder fish, next round’s on me!

Harmon Tap Room should tell PETA to take a hike. As soon as the fish get “organized” and protest their employment at the bar, which involves a lot less getting eaten than their day jobs do, then PETA can step in with lawyers and finance the case.

Otherwise, they can go play elsewhere.
