Animal rights group PETA's poster campaign against anglers

Anglers have been left reeling after animal rights activists put up a giant poster in Ashford questioning the size of their 'rods'.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has deliberately targeted the town and hired a billboard outside the International Station to provoke fishermen after the recent death of Britain's largest mirror carp, Two Tone.

Hundreds of anglers mourned the death of the 45-year-old monster fish, who weighed 67lb 14oz, after it was found dead in Conningbrook Lake last month.

Mid Kent fisheries manager Chris Logsdon, who maintains the lake, branded the PETA poster protest as "pathetic".

Mr Logsdon said: "It just shows their immaturity and their mindset. Anglers protect the environment. They don't know what they're talking about."
