A petition has been launched to have a white sturgeon removed from a display at the new Tsawwassen Mills megamall in Metro Vancouver.
The five-foot fish is living among salmon and trout inside Bass Pro Shops, a 148,000-square-foot store that features a 15,000-gallon freshwater aquarium.
The massive outdoor gear and apparel shop opened just two days ago, but the sturgeon display has already sparked controversy, with some animal rights activists calling to have the fish removed immediately.
