It is very dangerous for a fish to travel by bicycle

Dobbies general manager Neil Hughes said: “Dobbies takes its policy towards responsible pet and livestock retailing very seriously and the safety of the animal is of utmost importance.

“Before we can authorise the sale of pets or other livestock we have to be certain that each new pet owner is aware of their responsibilities in caring for the animal in a safe environment.

“Our pet and aquatics staff at Gailey explained that Mr Booth’s method of transportation was potentially unsafe for the fish and hence we were unable to authorise the sale on this occasion.”
