Eating live goldfish 'is a crime'

THE ISPCA has warned 'neknomination' participants that eating live goldfish is a criminal offence.

The Irish animal cruelty organisation issued a public statement after a woman in the U.K. posted a video of herself swallowing a goldfish in a pint of alcohol.

ISPCA chief inspector Conor Dowling said: 'Eating any live animal and posting it on a social media site is not funny.'

'It is unacceptable and is sending out a message that animal cruelty is okay.'
