They had this "winter carnival" in one of the cafeterias in my school last night. They had a few activities that were fun, but one of the activities was a game where you could throw ping pong balls into tiny bowls filled with either a goldfish or a beta fish. I've seen this game before and it does stress the fish out, but the worst part is people who win the fish often keep them in those tiny little containers and you can't keep goldfish in a cup of water! They were large goldfish also. I think it is also cruel to keep bettas in that amount as well. Anyways, at the end of the night they had about twenty five fish left and they were going to throw them all out! Everybody took the ones in the cups right away, but no one wanted the other ones who didn't have single cups. So, a girl on my floor took them and went around looking for homes. I took the last five because no one wanted them. Poor fish...I feel bad for them because they are in a 2.5 gallon tank and definitely don't have enough room, but they have to wait until next weekend when I go back home and can put them in the barrel pond I have. I guess it's better than death by garbage though... I just don't understand why they have to use fish as the prizes. So many people just think they are throw away animals. They may be cheap, but I still hate to see animal cruelty like that! I just can't understand why they couldn't play a different game and give out prizes that aren't living!
