A video of a so-called pike angler dragging a fish up a rocky bank and putting his foot on it to keep it still has been taken down from file sharing site Youtube.com.
Anger erupted after the PAC posted a link to the footage, believed to have been shot on Loch Oich, near Inverness, on its blog and forums.
A message on the Youtube site tonight said: "This video has been removed by the user."
Some clips of the captor of the fish and friends indulging in other harmless country pursuits can still be viewed.
