Mistreating children is enforced by patents loosing the children. Either way im sure we can all agree mistreating anything living is wrong

I would agree with this. In a society that is already too litigious and over-legislated, Ca and SF in particular seem to take it to an extreme... all on the taxpayer's dime. The last thing this hobby needs are more laws aimed at consumers and pet stores. If we are going to legislate anything, it ought to be aimed at the suppliers and their collection methods... but even that would require some convincing on my part to agree with it.

This is just SAD I can't really think of anything to say it's so absurd I don't even believe it's true

The Dilemma Deepens...

Oh my...guys this just got even worse and more ridiculous.
And this time, it's from a credible news source. The LA Times...check out these two articles written by them.

Pet-sales ban: San Francisco considers banning the sale of all pets — even goldfish - latimes.com

San Francisco: The city's latest silly notion is to ban sales of pets - latimes.com


I can't believe it...and what is quite ironic is the fact that San Francisco is named after the saint who is the savior of animals...

See the problem with this law is that it makes sense of paper, however it won't actually works. Because at the end of the second article states that people would just go to neighboring towns to buy pets. This would only hurt the economy of San Francisco, and not solve any animal cruelty issues. So the law wouldn't really solve anything

I know, I don't get why they would even create this law. It's quite dumb really, how they're publicizing this.

I think that ban is an abuse from the city board ! Maybe they can set up guidelines regarding goldfish trade at the Carnivals... But they should not have the power to "ban" your right to provide a good shelter to your pets....

It's going to suck for me if this law passes... I bought most of my fishes in the bay area. Although we have a few good LFS here in the valley, I still drive close to an hour to buy better quality fish from the Bay. The only good scenario is if they move to the valley, closer to where I live.

About the goldfish issue, maybe one of the reasons is the fish that you get from the fair as a price or something? I also agree that it doesn't have anything to do with puppies and Kittens.
