California Court Rules that Bees Are Fish in Order to Protect Them
Just when you think California can’t get any crazier…they go and prove us wrong.
We all know what a fish is, right? A fish is a type of animal that lives in the water and breathes through gills. There are no fish that do not do this. This is basic biology, right?
Well, in California, a judge ruled that bees are a fish and therefore can be protected under the state’s endangered species laws.
The Daily Wire reported,
“Although the term fish is colloquially and commonly understood to refer to aquatic species, the term of art employed by the Legislature in the definition of fish in section 45 is not so limited,” Judge Ronald B. Robie wrote in the majority opinion in the case. Under the California Fish and Game Code, a “fish” is defined as “a wild fish, mollusk, crustacean, invertebrate, amphibian, or part, spawn, or ovum of any of those animals.” The code also defines an “endangered species” as “a native species or subspecies of a bird, mammal, fish, amphibian, reptile, or plant which is in serious danger of becoming extinct.” It defines “threatened species” in a similar way.
So here’s the thing in my opinion, bees are indeed invertebrates, they are not freaking fish. Why don’t they just add some other section or something to protect bees if that’s what they want to do? So not only can a man “be” a woman, but a bee can now “be” a fish according to California.
They said that fish is colloquially and commonly understood to refer to aquatic species, but the specific legislation is not as precise so therefore they can call a bee a fish. Here’s a challenge, show me a fish that is not aquatic.
If it’s too difficult to create new laws to protect bees if they are endangered, then you address that problem. Maybe it shouldn’t be that difficult to do such a thing. But they’re too stupid to think of that in California. Instead, their solution is to call a bee a fish.
