PETA wants Grand Haven lighthouses for "fish empathy center"

The title should say it all, however if you want to subject yourself to all of the details from the Detroit News, the story is below. All I know is that I will be beside myself if a single dollar of my tax money goes to a "fish empathy center."

Grand Haven's Lake Michigan lighthouses are the prime location sought by an
animal rights group for its anti-fishing campaign headquarters.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has applied through
a federal program to take over the structures and lighted catwalk that are
frequently photographed for dramatic sunsets, thick winter ice and crashing

The area gets nearly 2 million annual visitors, including anglers
casting lines into the Grand River channel and heading out in boats for Great
Lakes salmon.
