Stop Sales of Betta Fish at WalMart

Situation: Sale of Betta Fish at WalMart Stores should be ceased IMMEDIATELY. Poorly kept Betta Fish are being sold at WalMart, they sit on the shelves in dirty water in their very tiny containers, most of the fish with tattered fins and appearing lethargic. The containers are on the shelf for customers to readily handle without employee assistance. Receiving food and clean water is an obvious given to most people, but not Wal Mart. The condition they are kept in is disturbing, but it was extremely disturbing to witness a teenage shopper swirling the container of one poor Betta Fish and laughing at the prospect of it getting dizzy. Her mother was standing right there laughing along with her. Please take a moment to sign the petition and contact Wal Mart here:



  • Anonymous Pocomoke City, MD. Over half the bettas dead in their tiny cups. Rest of fish neglected for days.
