So I was at the liquor store yesterday and was incredibly shocked when I got to the counter! They had a betta living in a SMALL skull shaped LIQUOR BOTTLE! It looked dead! I told the lady, "that's not enough room for a betta" and she rolled her eyes(yes, very rude) and said "Well you should've seen the cup he came in, they said that was all he needed." I don't know who 'they' are but I'm guessing the pet store.. but did she really think bettas could LIVE in a cup of water? I was trying to tell her to do some research but my mom pulled me out of the store and told me to let it go(I was getting to the point of being rude myself).. I wanted to let the lady have it.. Fish deserve better..
Anyone else feel my frustration? I still can't let it go. That poor fish in that small cramped bottle. I can't imagine how she fed it.. the opening is quarter sized..doesn't that deprive oxygen too? Here's a link with a picture of what the liquor bottle looked like....
I'm so disgusted. How can people treat a fish like that. He wasn't even moving and the water was yellow!! Can I call animal control on the woman? Or is that crazy? I don't know what to do, that fish will die. :(
