Default Betta Petition

Hi all. I came across this petition to stop the cruel way bettas are kept on display at a major chain retailer. This is for the bettas! This petition is at less then half of the needed signatures right now. Please take the time to sign this and other petitions that you care about. It's important to stop the inhumane treatment of animals. Animals can not speak. We have to speak for them. Please get the word out.

Default Re: Betta Petition

I always thought it odd how they're kept. Although, I don't suppose it's much different than dogs and cats at pet stores kept in cages. Thing is you don't see them promoting permanent living quarters barely bigger than the cage for those animals like you do bettas.

The store we bought our betta from had them in open cups, but there were a few tanks in the store that had bettas in them (as in one betta per tank, and usually alone altogether). I'd never seen that before. The ones that did have tankmates seemed to be of a sort that might be compatable (bottom dwelling, not brightly colored).

The petition is only at 449. Still need over 500 more signatures. I tried to post this petition on a myspace blog and bulletin.
