Poor goldfish. How do you prove a goldfish is defective?
Will this law apply to goldfish?
Many goldfish are flushed because their owners have overfed them. Goldfish (little carp) will eat as long as food is present. Overeating brings on constipation. And constipation deflates their internal air-sac which causes them to float on their sides (or even upside down). A funeral is unnecessary. But most goldfish owners don't know that so down the toilet they go.
