Citing animal cruelty, the Rome city council voted to make traditional round fish bowls illegal. Under the same law, goldfish may not be given away at carnivals as a prize for games. This is part of a growing trend in Italy to put several animal-protection laws on the books. Others include mandatory dog walks in Turin and a ban on trimming short dog tails for aesthetic reasons.

An Italian newspaper implied that spherical fish bowls caused fish to go blind. This claim is unsubstantiated, although some experts believe the aquarium design does not provide fish with enough oxygen.

Goldfish? They only live for like 2 days. How do they know it is the bowl? Will the continue to allow the carnival acts to swallow them live and bring them back up? People are crazy.
