Angry Why does Petsmart do this?!?!

So today I went to Petsmart Just to look, and I ended up buying a Moss ball (Can bettas have those?). But the real reason I started this thread was some Petco employee put TWO MALE BETTAS TOGETHER IN THE SAME CUP!!!! UGH it gets me so mad!!! So they ended up fighting, and one male bit the other's tail off and now the other betta is lying on its side, fins torn, red, and he appears to be breathing very rapidly. I JUST HATE WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT!!!!

I saw the same thing once except it was two females. One of them was lying on the bottom already dead. The other one didnt look too great either. I can't even imagine what a person must be thinking to do such a thing. I mean, does the name Siamese FIGHTING Fish mean anything to them? I'm really sorry for the boys you saw. :'(

Was it PetSmart or Petco? but anyway, I would have taken it to the manager and said something about it. Hopefully get the person who did it fired. That's just horrible...

It's not usually the employees who do that. It's usually people messing around wanting to see them fight.

Agreed. Probably some dumb kids with no respect for living creatures.

Regardless, an employee should have caught it.

let the manager know, also send an email or call corporate to complain. You also should have gotten the employees name. Someone like that shouldn't be left to care for ANY animal.

If you don't know who did it you shouldn't blame an employee. We've had people do that at my store and we try to catch it quickly, but on busy days sometimes you might not notice it for a bit.
