A pet shop owner who was electronically tagged after selling a goldfish to a 15-year-old boy has said she was "stunned" by the sentence.
Joan Higgins, 66, pleaded guilty at Trafford Magistrates' Court to selling an animal to a person under the age of 16 unaccompanied by an adult.
She also admitted causing unnecessary suffering to a cockatiel at Major's Pets, in Sale, Greater Manchester.
