Hey guys, I was horrified to see a swan kept in a very shallow and small "pond" inside a pet shop at a shopping mall called MOZO, in Nagoya, Japan.

Is this legal in Japan? What can we do to help?

Appalling! Hardival, if you live in Japan, you could contact the Japan Animal Welfare Society (based in Tokyo - Google it). It would know the laws in Japan and would send in an inspector if necessary. If you are outside Japan and don't know Japanese, contact the Japan Animal Welfare Society UK (JAWS UK) - a UK society with strong links in Japan. Their website is at http://www.jawsuk.org.uk/

Hope this helps.
