I'm suprised that they get mad at you when you change the water yourself down here.
Well to both of you i wouldnt make the sign and then file a complaint to them. I would just file a complaint, because its more formal and they will take you more seriously because as much as making a sign for everyone to see seems fun, its not very serious and will be taken down. Also they would just ignore it because its very childish.

Just a little heads up.

The results are in!

What's really sad is that they want the law to pass to "protect" animals but the funny thing is, that the law doesn't protect animals at all. Not only does it not protect the livestock being abused it's also abusive to the innocent pets. There's no way that abuse and neglect will ever be stopped completely. PETA should know that from all their failed attempts to eliminate it. If that law ever passed they'd cause most Americans with pets to move to the other side of the world. After all of us moved America would suffer because they wouldn't have as much money from us. Now that I think about it PETA is trying to kill off livestock, pets, and humans.

I filed an online complaint today with our local Walmart about the disgusting conditions in which they keep their Bettas. It was so hard to walk away from those poor fish.

If no-one gets back to me by the end of next week and if the fish are still floating in their waste, I will go in to see the manager. I'm so angry, gah.

i was SO happy when i went to walmart today. the cups were crystal clear, all but one of the fish were active, and i saw they'd just recently been fed(probably not by an employee, though). i was super tempted to get one boy, who's lived through the worst of it and came out active, and healthy-looking. stopped myself, though, mostly cause i was money-less today. x-X
