Wal-Mart Complaint - Stop Selling Fish !!!
CLARKSVILLE, INDIANA -- I, for the second time entered the Wal-Mart located in Clarksville Indiana to see the newly installed pet section. I and my family are avid animal lovers and have recently caught the tropical and saltwater fish bug. For the second time at this store I became mad and appalled at what I saw, downright neglect and animal cruelty taking place. The first time I asked for the manager and a sales person in the pet department asked if she could help. I told her about the Betta fish condition and asked if she could put more water in their containers. What I got was an attitude as she reluctantly did what I asked. One Month later I return to see even more horrible conditions as I counted 17 dead fish and by the looks of it, more soon would be following. The Betta’s were again struggling to stay upright because of the minimal amount of water in their containers.
I understand Wal-Mart is about providing a service in order to make a profit but if they can’t train their people to take care of a living, breathing thing, then STOP SELLING FISH. Wal-Mart is a disgrace to the fish business and I can only pray they stop selling them. They have once again disappointed me but have now gone a step further by torturing God’s creatures, shame on you. I am a small fish in a big pond but I will be one of the people that doesn’t just talk about doing something I will do it. I WILL NEVER and I mean NEVER by anything from Wal-Mart again. I will however continue to go to that store and voice my concern to the manager as I’m sure NOTHING WILL CHANGE. Wal-Mart lost another customer for life. Someone most speak for the creatures that have no voice.
