Goldfish Petition

    1. Emily Hirst
    2. Petition by

      Emily Hirst

      blackburn, United Kingdom

This is important because many Gold Fish (and other live animals) suffer in tiny bags and are given to anyone who may or may not look after them properly. The law was changed in Scotland, why is it different in England and Wales and the other countries across the world? The law will not get changed until the governments see that this has a lot of support and votes, so please help me by signing my petition.

      Schoolgirl's petition to ban goldfish prizes at fairgrounds gathers support from MPs - Telegraph

      Schoolgirls lobbying for the rights of goldfish have 9,000 names on a petition and support from four MPs. They want to stop fairgrounds giving children goldfish as prizes. Emily Hirst, 13, began the petition last year after winning a goldfish at Witton Park, Blackburn, Lancashire, and becoming horrified at the conditions they were kept in.

      The welfare of all creatures is important to me, and this is a cruel and archaic practice that needs to end,

      All animals, no matter the size deserve a happy healthy life. What worries me is the condition they are kept in before they arrive at the fairs.

      Everyone (including animals) deserve to live in suitable conditions

      Goldfish (aquarium fish in general) need to be treated just the same as any other living creature. Not as a toy or disposable decoration.
