Goldfish Bowl Abuse: Rome Bans Goldfish Bowls

Rome bans 'cruel' goldfish bowls An item from 2005, but still news to me and good news:

The Italian capital, Rome, has banned goldfish bowls, which animal rights activists say are cruel, and has made regular dog-walks mandatory in the Italian capital.

The city's council said the classic spherical fish bowls are banned under a new by-law that also stops fish or other animals being given away as fairground prizes.

It comes after a national law was passed to allow jail sentences for people who abandon cats or dogs.
