PETA Sends Obama 'Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher'

PETA wants the President to try taking a more humane approach the next time he's harassed by a fly in the White House so they are sending him a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

"We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals."

During an interview for CNBC at the White House on Tuesday, a fly flew into Obama's conversation with correspondent John Harwood.

"Get out of here," the president told the insect. When it didn't, he put his hand up and smacked it dead.

"Now, where were we?" Obama asked Harwood. Then he added, "That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker."

A spokesperson for the White House had no comment.
