Reporter Convicted For Killing Fish With Shampoo
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A TV reporter in Denmark wanted to prove the danger of shampoo. She said some hair care products contain toxic chemicals. So she poured them into a tank full of fish. A dozen guppies proved her point by dying for the TV cameras, which is why a veterinarian turned her in for animal cruelty. The reporter has been convicted in the incident from 2004, but the trial took so long the judge decided not to punish her. Unlike the fish, she got away.
