CHINA - An elderly woman from Kunming, the capital of Yunnan province, cooked pet fish belonging to her grandson to eat and to save water, Chuncheng Evening News reported on Friday.
The woman had objected to her grandson raising the fish, viewing this as a waste of water, but allowed him to keep them until he went abroad.
Two days after he left, she cooked all the fish, the woman's son told the newspaper.
He said his mother cooked the fish and ate them while he was out of town on a business trip. Fearing the fish might be poisonous, the son called the newspaper for help.
