Walmart recently began selling Betta fish in the store. The fish are kept in pint sized cups with lids. In each lid is a tiny feeding hole, which also supplies are to the cup. Each time I have seen the fish there have been multiple dead fish, and the water they are kept in has obviously not been changed. Fish should be kept in pet stores, where the employees' specific jobs are to care for the animals. In Walmart, the employees are clearly not taking care of the fish. This petition, if a substantial amount of signitures are obtained, will be sent to multiple Walmarts around Erie County as well as some pictures and a letter by myself explaining the topic further. This could just be the beginning. Please take this small action to help these fish, and push towards a more humane world. I really appreciate it!

    Not only should they not be sold at Wal-Mart but the cups they are sold in should be unacceptable in any pet store as well! Cruel conditions. If you can't provide adequate conditions, you shouldn't sell them, no matter who you are.

    Hello, I am contacting to inquire regarding the sale of live animals. I recently visited a Walmart store and I passed by the animal section and encountered a surprising sight. I saw 15 betta fish in plastic containers with water filled up halfway and with completely orange water, barely visible. I had to contact an employee and stacked up the entire sink area with sick bettas on top of each other. I want to report this traumatic encounter I had with this unacceptable treatment towards live fish. I am disappointed in the way Walmart Corporation is treating live animals without the proper research and sanitary care. I would like to request Walmart to please research the necessary water changing conditions for live betta fish without the need to create inhumane living conditions for them as they are living beings who require care. I also didn’t find an employee who specifically was in or monitoring the pet department. I went to the store to buy a betta fish and left upset with emotional trauma from the store. I would appreciate it if my concern will address this situation I encountered and improve the water care and living conditions for Betta fish. ITS DIGGUSTING AND TOTALLY INHUMANE AND CRUEL to see these beautiful living beings being treated like items when they are valuable animals who deserve every ounce of RESPECT.
    Thank you
