600 Gallon tank+disgruntled customer+chlorine powder= jail

I just came across this story(see link bellow) I am just speechless
I just can not belive anyone could do something this idiotic, cruel, sickening. But at least the man got what was coming to him.

On Thursday, sheriff's deputies arrested Armstrong, 27, of Port Charlotte, and charged him with cruelty to animals. In what might be Pinellas County's first-ever animal cruelty case involving invertebrates, the damage was serious

Im glad he got charged with animal cruelty as opposed to damage of property or something. That is crazy *shakes head*

They should ban him from every pet store, and ban him from ever owning another pet of any kind. I can't beleive there are people who would do something like that.

I don't think a case of declorinator would have helped, that had to be pool clorine and it's got other chemicals in it. Stupid bugger needs to be forced to breath carbon dioxide until he goes unconsious. That might let him know something of how those poor pets felt.

Dude, that just sucks..

Last year, at WalMart, I lost $1,500 dollars worth of fish becase someone poured drano into the tanks resovoirs and bleach down the sink (which when overflowed, runs into the fish tank piping...). Killed EVERYTHING in the tanks...we had to get new cultured biowheels sent in, a whole system repair because it clogged pipes and got into everything..

And the camera that watched the tanks, was getting fixed that night.....conincidentally, so nobody konws what happened... I just walked in one moring, to about 2000 dead fish... I think it was a customer, but may have been a dusgruntled employee instead.

Some people surprise me at how cruel and stupid they can be..
