[APD] Goldfish get rights in Rome


Goldfish get rights in Rome
Animal rights law mandates larger aquariums, as well as daily walks for dogs
Los Angeles Times

ROME - In the greater animal kingdom, the plight of the goldfish is
especially harsh. The tiny creatures are scooped into plastic bags and
awarded at carnivals and fairs. They are confined to bowls where they
can do nothing but swim around and around. Some (it has been claimed)
go blind.

No more. The municipal government of Rome has entered waters where few
city halls dare tread. Under a new law, the city's goldfish are
entitled to proper, full-sized aquariums, and they can no longer be
given out as contest prizes.
