South Korea Enlists Goldfish Security For G20 Summit

Besides the more than 50,000 police being mobilized in South Korea to protect world leaders during this year’s upcoming G20 summit, six goldfish are also being added to the security roster.

Their mission? To sit inside six toilet water tanks in the complex where the meeting will be held to ensure water purity. “The fish also symbolize an eco-friendly water policy, which recycles used water for the restrooms,” Oh Su-Young, PR manager at the center, told AFP, adding that they were just part of the inspection process.

In other words, they’re a modern day “canary in the coal mine”.

Animal Rights Activists are less than pleased, with PETA arguing that there are better methods for water security.

“Protecting world leaders is a very serious thing, but this is true for animal protection, as well as people suffering,” said rep Tracy Reiman.

“There are a lot of scientific methods that would better protect the world leaders and avoid the agony of Fishes due to contaminated water,” she wrote in a letter to South Korean authorities.

Somehow, life continues to mimic The Onion…

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
