Someone posted this on another board. I guess it's not just dyed fish we have to worry about anymore:

I'm at work right now, but I HAVE TO respond to this thread. I know it may sound like I am a very mean person, and if I am in this case - I honestly don't care, but I DO sincerely hope that the person who did this to those poor Oscars will suffer as much as the Oscars suffered when he/she was hurting them. I cannot believe people are such monsters. There are no worse monsters on this planet than PEOPLE. That's right. I wish this idiot was arrested and sentenced to live the rest of his/her life in a tiny cell in jail. I really do!

I can't look at this video, it makes me cry :'(

But the person could have put the fish under with some drugs and did the piercing then. But it is still very horrible.

I think we're looking at home videos of a future inmate at a state pen. (if he gets caught).. for someone to 1) think this is cool and 2) do inflict this suffering on pet fish and 3) be proud of it -- they are a dangerous individual to society and sociopaths often start out this way and move on to people.

OMG,sorry everyone but I wished I hadn't watched that,I can't stop thinking about it,How did they do that!!!!Just because they are into body peircing doesn't mean there fish have to be the same...there is one word but I can't mention it here.

I think sociopaths and other sickos get their jollies from animal cruelty before moving on to people.

If those are real piercings than I hope that those people burn to death. But we could always hope that those are magnetic jewlery and were used to make that video (not that magnets are good for fish but better than a punched hole in the mouth). This bring us back to the crullty of mankind. So we can sit here and complain to each other, try to keep our local fish stores free of these monstrosities, OR we can band together write letters get active and have the laws changed.

Yep. Quite a well known fact. an article by a PhD saying as much, too. A passage from the article, on a report by a couple of sociologists and an SPCA worker on the link between animal cruelty and violence against humans:

"Their findings were convincing: men who abused animals were five times more likely to have been arrested for violence against humans, four times more likely to have committed property crimes, and three times more likely to have records for drug and disorderly conduct offenses."

Another quote:

"In a number of studies ? one national and the others statewide ? 71 to 83% of the women entering domestic violence shelters reported that their partners also abused or killed the family pet."

I'd say the evidence is in. These guys are seriously disturbed to be doing this to a fish. If they feel the need to stick pieces of metal through flesh, they should stick to their own flesh.

I think that to be able to perform animal cruelty, and to a certain extent, conscious neglect, you need to be deficient in your ability to empathise. I reckon that psychological trait is huuuugely present in criminals who don't think of how their victims will feel.

I think they are all A******s......and can't say anything else.

how sad a person is when they can't feel for others.. it's hard for us here at fishlore to understand the empty heart of a person who can do that when we pass a sad-looking fish and want to take her/hI'm home to care for and nurse back to full health. those who can't feel for others don't belong in a civlized society. how can a person be like that? we don't understand it. :'(

There are so many screwed up people in our society...the sad part is that helpless fish have to suffer for it.

Actually, when you read his comments on youtube, they're nothing short of vicious I find. He doesn't sound like a very nice person at all.

aside from the piercing the person seems to be a fairly decent fish keeper and it is a shame that he or she has the monetary funds and time on hand to inflict such damage to a fish. On another not it also gets me mad when people don't consider fish as intelligent animals that need special care and often think that as long as there is water they are good to go. this has been updated because of all the negative comments but still someone did it! What does everyone think about Glofish the genetically engineered zebra danios?

I think it looks FUnkey, but I don't think that Its right to do that. But He owns them so he can do as he wants to them. Their is no law saying you can't do that to your fish. Its prolly a lot less painful then getting your cats n dogs Fixed.
I don't think it was right but imo it looks funkey.

You should read his justification on Youtube. He's really unapologetic, and calling every one ignorant.

I read thru this when my bf, Ty was in the room...he was very mad. Animals and fish having feelings too....plus it looks ****..poor Oscars. :;sm

Yeah, I found it quite disturbing as he made some kind of rationalisation about it, which made him all the more convinced that he was being reasonable and all who disagree were overemotive animal right terrorists.

yea, he's in serious need of professional help or a jail cell. All he's done is torture and mutilate beautiful fish to end up with his emo fish.
