I tried!

I was at Petsmart to pick up a couple little things, and as usual I had to stop and look at the bettas. There was a gorgeous "Dragonscale" laying on his side - I thought he was dead, but when I tapped the cup he moved a bit and tried to stay upright, but kept slowly drifting over onto his side.

I asked if I could try to rescue him since he looked in pretty bad shape, and after ending up with a manager over there, it came down to the old "We aren't allowed to sell sick fish." He said they would take him into the back and treat him, but my cynical mind thinks that means "Go stick this one in the back room to die out of pesky customer's sight."

*sniff* He was pretty too

I hate petsmart and petco, they let their animals die and don't even do anything about it. I watched a documentry on it cause a lady went undercover and videotaped it. She said like hundreds of animals died there everyday:C
