PETA Goes After ‘Live’ Seafood Joints


Perhaps inspired by the ASPCA’s visit to Sushi Uo, PETA is now targeting restaurants that serve “live” octopus, such as Sik Gaek, the Flushing establishment David Chang visited on No Reservations. Gothamist reports: “They’ve penned some letters to the district attorneys of each jurisdiction, pointing out that octopuses can feel pain and the restaurants’ practices violate the state’s anti-cruelty statute.”
