PETA: Pack blueberries, not sardines

The Associated Press

PROSPECT HARBOR, Maine — The owners of the defunct sardine cannery in Prospect Harbor are working on a deal to sell the plant to another seafood processor. But one group is throwing cold water on the idea.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has written a letter to Maine Gov. John Baldacci encouraging him to press for something other than seafood processing at the site.

PETA official Tracy Reiman says “lobsters and fish are smart, sensitive and unique individuals who should be respected, not killed and canned.” Reiman suggests using the plant to package blueberries instead of seafood.
