While I was shopping at Wal-Mart this week, I decided to stop by the fish. I was apalled to see that out of eight tanks, all of them had AT LEAST one dead fish, one had seven fish all sucked against the filter, and one had a dead fish wrapped in the live plants.
I asked for someone to help me get some fish to purchase, and to address the disgusting conditions of both the tanks and the fish. I waited 20 minutes, went to the service desk and addressed the issue. A worker called his supervisor, who did nothing, and ended up telling me i needed to call 1-800-walmart with any complaints. I took multiple pictures of how neglected these fish are and it's terrifing. Some of the pictures are blurry, but are still very visable. There are three tanks with large groups of fish against the filter and either dead or dying.
I take this very seriously, as should the buisness. I was upset when I saw them, so I went home and googled the issue. I found out that this is a HUGE problem in Wal-Mart stores all over the country. Sign this petition to tell Wal-Mart that their stores shouldn't sell pets if they dont have designated trained employees to care for them.
