AAAAH! I don't think I have seen water that dirty EVER. EVER.

Even supposing you don't give a living crap about fish how on earth your you stand the sight of that thing on your desk, let alone the smell?!

See if this person had not a betta but a filty mousecage on his desk smeared with faeces everyone would be too mad to speak. But since its a fish, people either don't know they can feel pain or don't care >:(

Normally I advise against this but I TOTALLLY vote you abduct him. People will find it FAR harder to believe you abducted him than that he finally succumbed to that filthy water.

THAT JUST ISN'T RIGHT.

As an afterthought I would be afraid s/he would get a new betta and put it back in the bowl... maybe when you break the news that it 'died' when s/he comes back you can throw in a few things like how ammonia would have reached lethal concentration in a few days in that amount of water. Or better yet offer to advise them on how to set a better tank up the next go round.

If you guys work at a lab the least they should be aware of is that exposing animals to ammonia = bad!

I agree with Kelly. She probably will turn around and get another one.

Yeah, I didn't think of that. :/

I agree that if she were keeping a mouse in those conditions or worse a puppy kept in a crate all day with it's own poo, the place would be outraged. Poor fishy. :(
