Or answer questions in store/yahoo fish answers. ;D

Watch them die and just "replace it with a new one".

Too bad we aren't all from the same area, cause then we could have a protest outside the store while the event was happening.

Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!

I would picket that event. Hand out flyers at the door... maybe I should. Freedom of speech right?

As long as you're on public property (such as a sidewalk) they can't do anything about it. Even if they call the police, all they will say is that you have the right to be there (as long as you're not doing anything harmful or illegal, obviously) and then they'll leave. I have protest experience, and usually anything the company says to you is just an empty threat.

So outside their store is a no, but the street would be a yes? What if it was inside of a mall (like a out door one) but outside their door.

*starts singing* Fish Shall Overcome, then Blowin' in the Fins, then Give Feesh A Chance.

But really ... that's going to lead a lot of kids down the irresponsible pet ownership path. If you can't do anything, what you're doing now is probably better.

You CAN be in front of the store, as long as you are standing on the sidewalk, because they can't OWN the sidewalk, that's public property. An outside mall is the same thing, you can be on the sidewalk in front. You shouldn't be in the street, because the police WILL tell you to move out of the street.
