Just When I Think Humanity Can't Shame Me Even More...

Have you heard of this 'goldfish swallowing'? Stupidly enough I went to the site (Which I don't advise and please let me warn you it is awful. AWFUL.) and to my still unsettled anger they were swallowing bettas too.

Of all the cruel, insane, and vicious things to do... They not only put these fish through hell swallowing them alive (and sometimes trying to vomit them back up alive) but they made a site about it to promote it and film it for people.

I give up. I want to hand in my 'human being' card and divorce this species.

I asume they try it like Jackass, where a live fish is swallowed and attempted regurgitation with a live fish

If I see a video or see someone in real life attempting to swallow a betta I assure you they will get an earful and for the real life attemption if I'm within the same distance I will smack them so hard their grandkids will feel it.

Who knows maybe we'll get lucky and someone will contract ich from trying to eat a betta and they'll stop. They don't know that betta's have diseases like that and that goldfish secret toxins.

Thankies.

Honestly this sides with the Aquablock. Betta abuse. No just animal abuse because other fish are being swallowed.
