Outrage: Employees At Flea-Infected SkyCity Casino Wear Flea Collars

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Staff at New Zealand`s largest casino have resorted to wearing flea collars to combat a pest infestation, a report said Tuesday.

The staff at Auckland`s SkyCity Casino were issued with insect spray to deal with an ongoing pest problem and some had taken to wearing pet flea collars around their ankles to discourage the insects, the New Zealand Herald reported."



I would patronize a casino where the employees donned S & M collars around their necks or ankles, but i would never go to a casino where the employees feel they have no alternative other than wearing flea collars.

Wearing flea collars dehumanizes the staff at the casino, and it repels the customers. What person in his right mind would go to a casino that`s infested with pests?

The casino needs to be closed so that the pest problem can be dealt with once and for all, but the management doesn`t want to lose money by shutting the place down.

Of course the SkyCity Casino is going to lose a lot more customers once the word is out that it`s infested with fleas and God only knows what others pests.
