Man Fined £385 After Swallowing Live Goldfish

Sky News:-  A man has been fined £385 after he was filmed swallowing a live goldfish that he won at a funfair.

Joshua Coles, 27, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal in September 2018.

A 14-second clip shows Coles, from Washfield, Devon, with the fish in his hand before swallowing it with a drink and then showing his empty mouth to the camera.

The video was posted on Snapchat, where it was shared widely and reported to the RSPCA.

Officers said that Coles won the fish at Bridgwater Fair in Somerset between 26 and 29 September.

The fish would have been under stress and suffered before it slowly died, Exeter Magistrates’ Court heard.

Coles was ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work, was banned from keeping fish for five years, and fined a total of £385, the RSPCA said.
