Noted - very few people/companies that are cruel to animals get charged with anything - therefore I still say they should be taken off this planet.

Again I agree with Leslene. The farming industry has too much political power and deep pockets. Once again i am disgusted by policy/law makers. Animals always lose.

I have to disagree with my fellow Care2 Members on this one. If in fact, the company has had no other incidents in 10 years of operation, they must be doing something right. I look at this as an unfortunate event, for which they have agreed to invest funds into other positive projects and are sharing the information they have learned with other companies. It sounds as if they are truly concerned and want to avoid any such type of atrocity from happening again. Noted and hopeful.

"In the 10 years of operations before that, the company had never experienced such a downing, but Grieg's managing director, Steward Hawthorn, says the animal's behaviour changed for some reason in 2010."

I detest what happened but I agree with Sheila Stevens. They must be doing something right if it has not happened befor. But one part of the comment bothers me. "the animal's behaviour changed for some reason in 2010.". Is it possible that the waters off Gold River have become warmer, or at least changed with climate change such that it has affected behaviour? Or is it possible that some parasite in the water from the farmed fish is affecting other aquatic life? One of the biggest concerns I have heard about in the "wild versus farmed" salmon debate, is the parasites in the farmed fish, some of which cause tumours etc.

Just thinking out loud.
