Crafty passersby quickly scooped up the free fish flowing out of the Dusit Thani Pattaya’s fish pond.Crafty passersby quickly scooped up the free fish flowing out of the Dusit Thani Pattaya’s fish pond.

Fish were kept on the grounds as part of the hotel’s environmental initiative. But the environmental initiative quickly turned into a charity initiative when Pattaya’s inadequate infrastructure tipped the scales on the fish, freeing them from captivity only long enough to end up on dinner plates.
