Conviction for abusing fish a major victory: SPCA  Listenfacebook
The former owner of a pet fish store has been slapped with a suspended jail sentence for abusing a fish. A video of the defendant, Hui Kwok-yu, repeatedly slamming a plastic bag containing the fish hard onto the ground was uploaded to the internet early this year. He was apparently trying to prove to a customer that the bag holding the fish, some water, and inflated with air could take the punishment. The SPCA's Deputy Director of Veterinary Services, Dr Jane Gray, says it was the first conviction of animal cruelty in Hong Kong that involved a fish. But she told Jim Gould that the sentence was less than what they would have liked, but it was a major victory for them.
