I liked the nice blog

the big fish eats the small fish

Anyway, I'm more considered about hunting down and shooting people who plant bamboo in the neighborhood.

That's a good point. You'd think these people had watched 12 Monkeys, 28 Days Later, and Snakehead Terror by now. But it's like asking how to stop idiocy -- you'd think a desire to help animals would entail a desire to learn something about animals, but that's too often not the case. I'm sympathetic to trying to stop that kind of vigilante buy-and-release efforts, but I don't think it's fair or necessarily ethical to ask a large and well-defined immigrant sub-culture to bear the brunt of that.

Anyway, I'm more considered about hunting down and shooting people who plant bamboo in the neighborhood. That shit grows fast enough I'm pretty sure I could claim a stand-my-ground self defense.

The problem with live food sales is that bleeding heart animal rights activists (usually Cau-cAsian) go to these stores and buy up the stock, then release them in the wild the name of animal liberation. These species released can be from Asia, and if they don't die a slow horrible death in an alien ecosystem, they survive and breed and voila a new invasive species is released in the wild.

Granted this happens with fish that aren't eaten (aquarium fish) but happens more frequently with edible species due to the activist actions. So how can you stop a live food item from getting loose and thriving in the wild?
