Unhappy Betta in vodka bottles.

I keep seeing betta kept in vodka bottles on tumblr.
It is so sad.
But the owners won't listen when people tell them that it's bad for the fish.


Here are URLs to the pictures.

I was going to say someone would have to be riding the short bus to do that. That's still sad though. Bottles are FAR from tanks. It's cruel when people force them into those hellholes and I bet they rarely get cleaned either. Poor fish.

Is that the one who ironically said she was an animal lover? Pffft, animal lovers don't do something like that to a living thing. That is like saying "Oh yes I love the elderly but I like to push old ladies down the stairs because it's funny to watch." "I love animals but only when they serve me for my own amusement, suffering or not." -shakes head- No, real animal lovers are the people who research the animal they buy to give them the best possible life they can afford. Not use them as what...house decorations? NO, that is no animal lover, that is the person they have on those shows who get arrested for abuse and saw nothing wrong with what they were doing and didn't care if it was wrong all the same.

i think a nicely shaped bottle (cleaned out VERY well) could make a nice decoration for an actual tank, but does NOT need to be a "tank" itself.

Oh my goodness, I wish my vegan friend would figure this out. She claims she loves animals, and wants to buy them all to rescue them, but she doesn't even take care of the dog she got from the shelter...It lives in her garage in her condo, is obese, and doesn't exercise.
Or my other friend who wanted a dog because all her friends had one...someone's dog had puppies, so she took one, and it lives in a 5 1/2' x 7' room...no exercise, not allowed to play in the yard, gets human food (because he "likes" eating it, stuff like grapes, bananas, oranges etc.)...poor dogs.

Also, I believe that bottle holds a gallon, which some people raise their bettas with. I held a gallon of milk in that bottle before (because I dropped the milk and the milk bottle exploded lol)

It doesn't look like a lot of space compared to a one gallon bowl though...haha
