PET SHOP OWNER LEFT TRAUMATISED, FINED AND TAGGED!
The woman who has owned the above PET SHOP in Manchester has just been FINED £1000 and HAS BEEN ELECTRONICALLY TAGGED for two months.
Her son of 47 has been ordered to do 120 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE.
THEIR HEINOUS CRIME? To unwittingly sell a goldfish to a 14-year-old boy taking part in a trading standards 'sting'. At most, pet shop owner Joan Higgins, 66, expected a slap on the wrist for breaking new animal welfare laws which ban the sale of pets to under-16s.
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS COUNTRY COMING TO? ALL THAT, FOR A FISH?
