    Re: Pet shop owner fined 1,000 and told to wear an electronic tag... for selling a G

    A Conservative-run council has defended its decision to pursue legal action against a pet shop owner who was prosecuted for selling a goldfish to a child.

    It later emerged that the shop, Majors Pets, had also, last May, sold a gerbil to a 14-year-old girl with learning difficulties who later that day put it in a cup of coffee, killing the animal, the council said.
    It's just a goldfish, it's just a bird, it's just a gerbil. Sounds to me a good decision that these people shouldn't be in the animal business.

    No, the article said exactly what KOV03 posted. Maybe you should try reading more than the first paragraph.

    I mean, its a ****ing dog, right?
    Yes because that's EXACTLY the same as this situation...

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    But there are no charges for cruelty . Just the goldfish. It's this severity of the charges that is ridiculous.
    The article also shows lesser charges for greater crimes.
    They need better guidelines for the judges apparently.
    from same article

    Actually, you should do the reading. From the linked article:

    Mrs Higgins and her son were charged with selling the fish to a person aged under 16 and with causing unnecessary suffering to a cockatiel by failing to provide appropriate care and treatment.
    So yes, in point of fact either the article is lying, or he is wrong.

    So what is the dividing line? When is it ok to mistreat animals, and when is it not?

    Which silly ****? Jumping to conclusions based on incomplete evidence? Or people being charged with animal cruelty?
