Stop Fish Prizes!
At almost every fair in America, you can find at least one carnival style game where the prize is a live fish for you to take home and care for. But the problem is, most of those fish never make it home once they're won. Children will shake them or take them on rides, adults will accidentaly drop them or bump them into another person. Most of these fish die a painful death! The ones that do make it home, usually don't go to a good one. People aren't prepared to have the responsibility of caring for the living creature; they aren't ready for it. Stop the harsh ways of these carnival games and put an end to fish prizes. This is animal cruelty and it must be stopped. Thank you for your time; we appreciate it.
