Ever seen Tatooed fish??

My friend just bought some at Petmor! Isn't that animal cruelty?

  • For sure, it's animal cruelty!!

    The tattooing process involves:
    1. Handling the fish out of the water.

    2. Puncturing the fish with needles to inject the dye.

    3. There is a possibility of post tattooing infection.

    4. If the fish are stressed, there is a risk of lowering their immune system, making them more susceptible to diseases and infections.

    Yeah... that's pretty cruel.. Sucks that your friend supported that.
