Is it P.E.T.A. or is it E.L.F Saving Snails?

Seattle,Wa - Someone is trying to save the snails.

In a disturbing trend in local Aquariums someone has messed with the snails. Now most aquarium owners don't really care much for snails in their tanks or want anything to do with them. As a matter of fact mention the words Pond Snail or Malaysian Trumpet Snail and they run around in circles screaming that the sky is falling.

Getting rid of snails in the old days was done by using copper based medications but with the recent string of cruelty to animal lawsuits by P.E.T.A. and the rash of aquarium vandalism by E.L.F., local aquarium owners have been looking for other ways to rid their tanks of snail infestations.

So enters the Antentome Helena or more commonly know Assassin Snail, this snail is the dream of all aqaurium keepers world wide. Discovered only recently and not widely distributed yet it seems to be the perfect answer. The Assassin Snail only eats other snails and will not eat it's own kind, they also breed at a very slow rate so will not over populate a tank very quickly. What could be better than the pefect snail control in a completely natural way...

But all is not well....

It seems that either P.E.T.A. or E.L.F. has other plans for these seemingly ideal snails. It has been rumoured that one of the two organziations has hired renown snail hypnosis Getrude Slimelayer to change these snails from killers to freedom fighters. Gertrude refused to talk to us but from souces close to her it has been said that she hyponised the Assassin Snails to carry out the mission of freeing other snails they encounter instead of eating them. Though the use of hypnosis the Assassin Snails slowly under the cover of darkness eat away at the silcone barriers on aqauriums hoping that over time they will weaken enough that the water pressure will burst the tank freeing all of the inhabitants to make a run for it.

We caught up with a disgruntled Assassin Snail owner and asked him what he thought here are his comments.

"Well I just bought five of them there Assassin Sanils and they are nothing but glorified speed bumps for my other snails. I want to see them tear into the other snails like a bear into a honey comb, but no all they do is sit and do nothin'. I mean no snail guts scattered everywhere not even a little nibble... These durn snails are wusses."

When we asked a P.E.T.A. official here was the response we got...

"Now understand we have nothing to do with the whole Assassin Snail debacle that seems to be going on, but if someone were able to free all the snails held captive by those people who have no care for the well being of aqautic animals in their home then we would be all for it. Snails have feelings too and they should be free to go about their daily lives just as you and I are."

E.L.F. responded in their usual format of destroying another aquarium under construction. This time it was Billy Snicklefritz's 10 gal tank. we got Billy's story and the message left behind by E.L.F.

"Well I was trying to build a nice home for my Betta and my mommy got me a couple of Mystery snails to go in the tank. We came home last night to find the tank tipped over and wet foot prints leading down to the local stream where we figure they let my snails go. Who would want to harm my friends Blippy and Slimy they were such nice snails and I know my Betta Snippy would have been good friends with them. Then the mean people wrote free the snails by lining up all the betta bits on the kitchen table... Man I'm mad and mommy says my poor snails are gone probably dead because they can't survive in 45 degree water but those jerks.. Momma gonna be mad at me if she knows I said that... Think that they are saving the palnet."

So who is really behind the seemingly unkiller killer snails. We may never know.....
