So I’m going through the betta tag to fill up my queue and I come across this picture.
I’m sorry, but whoever took and likes this picture is a piece of animal abusing trash. Fuck this whole situation being used as artistic and the awful photographer who thought animals ripping each other limb for limb for “art” was cool.
EDIT: For those who don’t understand why this is bad, I thought I should elaborate.
Betta fish are extremely aggressive towards their own species. The “stripes” you see on the fish are a sign of stress as they attack and kill each other.
They’re not “just fish”. These are pets that the artist bought and acquired, then decided to practice animal cruelty and abuse by having them kill each other. This is the same as forcing two dogs to fight. No, there is no difference.
Forcing any animals to fight for your own amusement or your sick, twisted version of artistic right is disgusting. The artist and anyone who likes this photo of two animals forced to suffer at the hands of the pet owner who should be providing them warmth, shelter, food, and safety is a horrible person who should feel bad about themselves and their choices.
