The brutal industry that breeds betta fish and leads them to a life of neglect and misery relies on EVA Air to bring them to stores in the US. Take action! https://peta.vg/35xw via @PETA
I was shocked to learn of the brutality associated with transporting live fighting fish to pet stores in the United States. These fish are reared in crowded and muddy farms in Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries and then dumped on a plastic sorting tray while they suffocate. for air.
It can take days for them to be transported to the US, during which time they are locked in small plastic bags with no food and barely enough water to cover their bodies. Many die while traveling, and survivors are sold in stores like Petco, where their complex needs are usually ignored.
EVA Air can help end this cruel cycle by refusing to transport live cockerels from farms to pet stores. Please click on the link below and join me in urging EVA Air to end this practice immediately.
