Stop Sales of Betta Fish at WalMart

106 Signatures Goal: 100

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: http://walmartstores.com/contactus/feedback.aspx

    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. It is Walmart's RESPONSIBILITY to improve and offer the best living conditions to live animals to be a reputable and respected company unlike how it's displaying itself. Otherwise, many other animal loving customers will stop going there.
    Thank you

    This has to be stopped. They are killing the fish for the sake of money.
