Agreed. It's disturbing that he's perfectly OK with exposing his daughter to that kind of attitude toward living things. When I was a child I hated seeing all the dead and dying fish at the store... Especially when the ones that were still alive were munching on the dead ones.. I was also heartbroken when my first Betta in Elementary school died (my cat killed him while I was at camp because my parents didn't care for him like I asked them to, which included keeping the darn cat out of my room! They knew she loved to play with the fish (I also had a "paws off" aquarium decoration sign)).
