Some clever techies confused PETA supporters today by pulling a well-executed prank against their campaign to “re-brand” fish as sea kittens.[social_buttons]

Turns out that the page is a line-by-line duplicate of PETA’s actual sea kittens campaign site, but it’s not owned by PETA at all. According to Alley Insider, PETA has confirmed that the site is a parody and that they are not running any steak ads.
