The poor fish are kept in tiny plastic bags, often injured and malnourished and are trucked hundreds of miles regularly. And when they are “won” they are often treated no better. I have witnessed myself people shoving them in bins as they are unwanted, people throwing them in rivers, some idiots taking them on fairground rides such as waltzers! and I even witnessed to teenage boys winning around 4 fish each, then using them as water bombs against a group of girls. Horrific treatment.
Please sign to call for a ban and save these beautiful fish.
The same thing happened at a fair in North Carolina. People would win goldfish for answering questions and people were throwing them off the ferris wheel, letting out the water, and putting them in the trash. I feel so helpless, I don’t know what to do!
