Second appeal: Please Urge Texas Bar to Ditch Cruel Live-Fish ‘Shots’

Our Compass

BACKGROUND

Hoping to draw in customers, Redneck Heaven Restaurant & Bar in Texas, with locations in Lewisville, Forth Worth, and Arlington, reportedly offers a drink called the “Minnow Bomb,” which is made by forcing live fish into shot glasses filled with liquor for customers to swallow.
