This could have a greater impact than the usual BS that comes out of the group because of Disney's ability to anthropomorphisize its animal characters. Kids relate to them because they are portrayed to have feelings, emotions, and the ability to speak.

This is yet another reason to raise kids to be strong and able to make decisions for themselves. No lemmings, please!

It never ceases to amaze me how people can be so isolated from the realities of the outdoors as to think that it's better to spend our time and energy worrying about the fish's feelings than to worry about the hollistic forces that wipe out entire populations of said "warm and fuzzy" fish.

GET A CLUE!

Perhaps the good folks at PETA should go for a swim with the "vegetarian sharks". After all, they are our friends! Those who don't swim should try playing with those sweet, lovable, kind, and gentle tigers that would never hurt a soul.

I took the kids to see 'Nemo' and they really enjoyed it. I guess even my little one knows Disney is not reality. At any rate it did not effect her outlook on fishing, here she is hooked up on her 1st striper ever.

There is nothing wrong with teaching children to respect animals

and to be sensitive to their feelings. Maybe Jeffery Dahmer would have turned out a little different.
pita...yawn.
pita alerts...yawn.
Clean Air/Water & Endangered Species Acts...let's cry about pita instead.
Jim, it has been said that children who are adversly affected by television, have television for parents. I can't wait to take my girl fishing.

PETA is right, we should be "nice" to

the other animals on the planet. Instead, let's start fishing and hunting for PETA members. I can't think of many things in life more gratifying than bagging a trophy PETA member and having them mounted on the wall (no catch and release here, it's too inhumane to traumatize them once and then send them back to their homes).

That sushi pic is HILARIOUS! Bravo!

Yes, as others have said it's important to have a sense of respect for animals, even their feelings. But in order to eliminate carnage from their daily grind would be to eliminate all predation on earth, a literal genocide of all animals who live by earth's code, a broad spectrum of organisms who each day are part of an important and unrelenting cycle of eat or be eaten; the way of the earth regardless of what such self-declared holier-than-thou humanoids profess about life from their pre-warmed leather bucket seats set to individual preferences in eurocars with little windshield wipers on the headlights.

If animals could speak such that they could express their 'feelings' I wonder if they would prefer predation over extinction?

In fact if not for predation, the human evolutionary process would have likely ended many millenia ago, and the whole of our species would not have advanced to the point where candy-asses could contemplate such nonsense as vegetarian sharks.

The reality is, on this miraculous blue orb in the cosmos we tether precariously in orbit to the beat of an ever-faster drum stomping all manner of organisms into the earth as we steal habitat from them, violating the delicate balances of their domains and then sit at dinner parties and contemplate their emotions.

Man is apt to be ecentric to the realities of nature, particularly since we are so successful a species on earth. We tend to so easily forget that in reality, life preys upon life, and that *is* normal.

I have done a little research and PETA may not have Disney's blessing after all. I do wonder why the Disney company would be letting PETA use Nemo and friends in an ad campaign without their approval. I would think that Disney would take legal action to stop PETA.

Great photos Jim! Poor little Nemo!

I'm pretty sure that Disney World has bass fishing ponds and even hosts a bass tournament or two. A quick internet search turned up this result (mods -- feel free to disable the link if this is contrary to FFF policy):

Gentlemen--

Since I work for Disney with about five degrees of separation, I passed this to my editor at one of the B.A.S.S. publications. BASS, as you may or may not know, is owned by ESPN, which in turn is owned by Disney.

Her reply was that the official position is that the pirating of Nemo was not sanctioned nor approved by Disney in any way. There is no link except the use of copyrighted material without permission.

The stance makes sense as Disney does have bass ponds at Disneyworld and owns and operates B.A.S.S.-- the company that puts on the BASSMaster Classic and all the associated tournaments. Here I would do a drum roll, but they don't pay me that much.

It would make me feel good to see Disney hunt PETA down and sue the pants off them, but I doubt they'll do it. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see some kind of cease-and-desist order.

Keith
