Charges filed against a man accused of abandoning his pet fish have been dismissed. 

New Hanover County District Attorney, Benjamin David said Tuesday in a press release that all three charges filed against 53-year-old Michael Ray Hinson were dismissed.

We take a very dim view of anyone who would abuse any creature great or small and appreciate the enforcement of the laws to protect vulnerable animals, David said.

In the press release, David said the statute states that the term “animal” includes “every living vertebrate in the classes Amphibia, Reptile, Aves and Mammalia except humans.”
