Unhappy saw a very disturbing thing today

well i went to draw money today from a atm and when i started having trouble accessing my account and a strange bloke trying to peer around my shoulder decided it was wise to move away for abit noticed the proceed button had been jammed with match sticks so someone was trying something.

so went to the pet store next door and was browsing the fish and came across a standard 1ft tank and saw a male betta and thought he's nice then saw another and then a third and then noticed 4 females all in the same tank. there was a lil yellow man that looked really beat up and a red marble the same and all the females had stress stripes i was appalled! i couldnt even make out what tail type they were. then went to look at the puppies and there was a full grown jack russel that was so skinny i could probably circle his waist with my hands. i walked right out it broke my heart and he looked so sad! if i had my own place i probably would have brought him home and to heck what anyone else thought! having an abused dog myself and trying to heal her emotional wounds i could see the same bruised look in his face. aahhh i should stay away from petstores and rather go to exclusively fish stores no puppies

Next time this happens, ask to speak to the manager and let him know you will no longer be a customer unless they improve their conditions.

You should report this, it's illegal for a store to be treating animals so poorly.
Or it should be!
That's great you noticed the ATM problem, and great your account wasn't accessed.

This is ridiculous! A petstore should be taking proper care of their animals. It's illegal for anyone to be treating animals this poorly and you need to report them. It's a good thing the ATM issues led you to that petstore. Maybe it isn't too late for some of the animals.
