Bucket Brigade Saves Suffocating Fish

Written by PETA | June 28, 2011

You don’t need to be koi, Roy—just listen to PETA. Which is exactly what the staff at a  restaurant in Hoover, Alabama, did. They called to report that a private pond outside the restaurant was quickly drying up, endangering its 35 goldfish inhabitants. PETA’s caseworker walked the staff through how to guide the fish into water-filled buckets and transfer them to a larger pond. The employees waded into the water, and within a few hours, all the fish were safe.  

It’s fine if goldfish live in well-maintained, private ponds, but please never release companion fish into the wild. For more suggestions, see PETA’s “Caring for Fish” page.
