“Goldfish Whisperer” Causes Animal Rights Concern

February 16th, 2011  |  by  |  Published in Blog

Shanghaiist published a story today about a chinese magician who seemingly possessed the ability to control goldfish.

Dubbed “the Goldfish Whisperer”, his performance CCTV’s Spring Festival Gala saw him “moving them about a tank in single-file like they were his little fishy army”. This caused a stir amongst animal rights groups who are demanding to know the truth behind the magic.

Having watched the video it seems obvious to me that the fish are fake and controlled by magnets. Notice that they gain forward momentum with little to no tail action.

What do you think? Phony fish or something to fuel PETA’s fire?
