Tourists Accused of Killing Extremely Rare Fish Must be Punished

Target: Angela A. Bello, Nye County District Attorney

Goal: Punish tourists who allegedly killed a rare Devil’s Hole pupfish while skinny-dipping.

An endangered pupfish died after a group of tourists intruded on its habitat. Video footage shows the tourists roughly trampling through the fish’s shallow pool. Demand justice for this nearly extinct species.

Three men trampled through a pool in a federally protected park and left behind beer cans, clothing, and one dead Devil’s Hole pupfish. The pupfish is so rare that only 115 remain in the world. All of them are under federal protection due to their endangered status. Any intrusion into their habitat could disturb their fragile ecosystem and harm their food supply, putting them at risk.

The men face several possible charges including conspiracy to commit a crime, killing of an endangered species, and trespassing and destruction of habitat. Sign below and demand justice for this rare species.


Dear District Attorney Bello,

A rare pupfish has died, allegedly due to the intrusion of tourists. Three men broke into the restricted area and carelessly trampled through the fish’s habitat. We demand justice for this endangered fish.

The three men left behind beer cans, clothing, and one dead Devil’s Hole pupfish. Video footage shows the men breaking into the protected area and trampling through a shallow pool, the pupfish’s habitat. This violent intrusion disturbed the algae and the pupfish’s food supply, possibly leading to the death of the fish.

The pupfish has survived for tens of thousands of years in a balanced environment. It is unacceptable for man to upset this balance. We demand the harshest penalty for the men who intruded on and allegedly killed this rare fish.
