I for one do blame CBS for jumping the gun and allowing such nonsense to be placed on their network. Most magazines do research before the stories get published and I would hope that a major network would do the same. They may not be the ones that are responsible for the statements made by Tetra's Representative, but they did provide the media in which it was broadcast, and that makes them an accomplice. Maybe it will somewhat bring light to them that they should not be so irresponsible.. On a side note, on inhuman treatment, get this.
On our local news, they have an investigative team for civil stuff that viewers are having trouble with and want resolution. They got a call from one of the LFS
owners that wanted to get into a closed for good business that had a Fish tank inside... It had been a week and the guy only wanted to get inside to take care of the fish but the owner would not return his calls and the doors were locked with chains. He called 911 and rescue and no-ne deemed it neccessary to aid because it was only fish, not a dog or cat. HMMM Crazy. So, he turned to the TV station to find the owner and get the fish some help. Needless to say, all of the fish were dead from starvation
because the local law enforcment deemed fish unworthy of help in crisis...Go figure, your cat gets stuck in a tree and Fireman Fred will get him out of the tree, and your dog falls down the sewage hole and a Police Officer Pete will crawl down there and get him. That was a shocking story to me and the owner felt awful when he finally got the LFS
owner in there and found out the concequences of not being prepared when closing his store... Where is Duece Bigalow when you need him...
