I signed it. This is what I wrote-
It's inhumane and heartbreaking to see bettas kept in these conditions. Please stop the animal abuse. All animals need clean living conditions and proper food at a minimum. Please stop selling bettas or commit to better care.

I just signed the petition. Good luck! I hope it makes the higher-ups consider making some changes in how bettas are kept in Walmart stores, if they don't decide to stop selling them all together, of course.

The only bad thing with this is, state laws condemning animal abuse don't include fish, I guess they're not considered animals, so I'm saying don't count on saying "its animal abuse" to stop them!

Good luck! I'm gonna check this link out, it'd be great if they'd change their ways!

Actually, And I quote this site I read:

"The British RSPCA now formally prosecutes individuals who are cruel to fish."

So...British do count it!

But not us yet...

I'm signing this(hopefully) BTW!
