Busch beer has tagged fish and put them all over the united states. If you catch one of the fish, you will win the amount on the tag. They say they are trying to promote environmental conservation.<br><br><br><br>
I was hoping this was a joke but it's not. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

How exactly would they promoting conservation but getting thousands of people to go fishing to see if they can strike it rich? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

wow ... the bar of human stupidity has been lowered a notch <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
Lame idea obviously<br><br><br><br>
We should all email them with complaints<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Their last paragraph in the blue area is such a joke. You're right mis_taken77 , what good would this do for conservation. Now you'll have a ton of drunk people who never even fished going out and catching fish.

I emailed ...<br><br>
--------------------------<br><br><br><br>
In regards to this page below and it's supposed focus on conservation ...<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.abenvironment.com/busch.asp" target="_blank">http://www.abenvironment.com/busch.asp</a><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I find this idea quite disturbing (understatemtnt!). You say this will help conserve the fish and the environment. Well I really can't see how that could be. According to this plan, you'll get a swarm of people out there fishing and catching all kinds of fish in an effort to find the tagged ones. Many of these people won't know anything about fishing and many won't care about all the trash (including empty Busch beer cans!) they leave out in the wilderness. I imagine many will not give a damn about the fish, their place in the world or the environment. Many will just chuck the "loser" fish back without a regard. Many will not remove hooks in a nice way (not that hooks can be removed in a nice way!). Many fish will die or become maimed due to this horrible idea supposedly aimed at conservation.<br><br><br><br>
Furthermore, I find the idea of using living creatures as a cheap advertizing ploy to get more beer drinkers is obnoxious. This world supports the animals (including humans) and plants (and other life) in a complicated weave. Humans are not the reason for this planet and if humans keep these disrespectful ideas about the other living things in the world then we will be the ones toppled out of existance by our own arrogance and destructive actions to leave the insects to rule the Earth.<br><br><br><br>
I suppose if passenger pigeons hadn't been wiped out of existance a long time ago by people who didn't care about other living things , having a few of those pigeons tagged with 'winning tags' may also seem like a good idea to some company out there (I'm not suggesting your company would). Would your company agree that this was a good idea or would you feel this was irresponsible? What is the logically beneficial reasoning behind promoting your "Big Jake" fishing contest? In what scientifically proven ways will this idea promote conservation and also instill the idea of respect for life on Earth in other people? Have you really thought out your plan thoroughly?<br><br><br><br>
I will be emailing the "Environmental Partners" listed on your page and will be complaining to each one of them. I will also be emailing other environmental groups describing my disaproval of your plan.<br><br><br><br>
And I will continue *not* to drink any beverage made by your company and suggest to anyone I meet to do likewise.

They're obviously not trying to protect the fish. Grrrrrrrrr

This is barbaric. How can one make such a cruel spectacle out of nature and our fellow creatures? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
