Today ten live goldfish are swimming safely in blenders in the small museum near Copenhagen. That wasn't the case this past weekend when the museum let people decide if the blenders should be turned on.
The display has drawn unusually large crowds AND protests from animal rights groups.
The museum's director, Peter Meyer, says seven fish were killed before police pulled the plug.
Meyer says he never thought anyone would actually hit the switch. He faces an undetermined fine for animal cruelty.
Meyer says the exhibit raises serious questions about ethics in society.

(( Today's Website is one for the birds,...or at least the bird watchers. The folks with the National Audubon Society and Cornell University are looking for people to help with the Great Backyard Bird Count 2000.
They need people of all ages nationwide to track the birds in their neighborhood. It is a census to make sure declining populations don't eventually disappear.
Participants count the numbers and species of birds and e-mail them to the Cornell Lab. Results will be availible on a colorful map as soon as they are entered.
The project begins on February 18 and runs through the 21st. There's no need to register and the directions are on the website.
While you're there, be sure to check out the site's other features such as the bird of the week which offers pictures, cool facts, and even recordings of species from across the country.
If you want to know anything about birds, chances are you'll find it here. So be kind to our fine feathered friends and check out our website of the day. You can find it through a link to our webpage on WDBJ7-dot-Com. I'm Patrick Evans.))[Close-ID] [5pm] SUPER=x4035; fax/copyright [SUPER=x4034;email/copyright]
